Antique Photo: Rogersville High School, Senior Class of 1925

I happened upon this photo in an antique store today. From what little I have researched, this high school was in Rogersville, Missouri. In white print below the photo, it says “Senior Class of 1925”. I’m publishing it here in the event it ever assists someone with their research. Happy Labor Day Weekend, and stay safe everyone on the east coast here in FL and on up to GA, SC, etc.

  1. It’s nice to resurrect these forgotten photos and put them out there in case someone might find a family member.

  2. It is sad that these photos wind up in thrift shops. I was glad to see that you (like me) retrieve them and try to find a place for them. I once found an old WW I photo with just a name on the back and was able to trace the family to Fresno, California and return it to the family. They were thrilled.

    • Wow! That’s great! It is indeed very sad to see so many old photos end up homeless. Without any identifying info, there’s not much one can do. When I saw the very faint writing in white with the HS name and year on this one, I could not just walk away. I’m sure you and I are not alone in doing this, which is a very good thing. It always feels good to get items back into the hands of family.

  3. I found it interesting how everyone in the front row had their hands folded together. I wonder if it was posed that way or happened naturally. –Curt

    • Hello, Curt! You are right; I had not noticed that, but I did notice the positioning was mostly boy-girl-boy-girl. So perhaps the hand placement was orchestrated as well. Hope you have been keeping well. I have a patchy presence online these days and don’t manage to check in on others’ blogs as much as I’d like. I thought the young man in the second row on the far left looked interesting. Ethnically he looks different, and he appears to be wearing a turtleneck–no shirt & tie.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
