I found a 1946 Huntsville High School yearbook at a thrift store. I thought it was so cool, I had to buy it.
There was a name and address written on the inside cover and I wondered if her house was still standing. My friend (Malia) and I plugged the address into the GPS and headed to downtown Huntsville, Alabama.
We were able to find the address, but I wasn’t sure if it was the house where Sally lived. I walked up to the front door and knocked. The owner opened the door and looked at me with a stern expression. I introduced myself, showed her the yearbook, and explained my mission. I was wondering if she knew when the house was built. The current home owner became interested in my quest and we had a great conversation.
After talking with her and her neighbor, it was confirmed that the house was built in the 1920s, so this is where Sally lived 73 years ago.
I spent the rest of the evening wondering about Sally. What ever became of her? I am sure she never dreamed some random person would find her yearbook at a thrift store in 2019 and start researching information about her life.
