1906 Basketball Teams

Last week’s Throwback Thursday was the Mandolin Club. This week it’s basketball season. How about Rockford High School, Illinois basketball teams in 1906?

Another page or two from my grandmother’s yearbook. No relatives on either team but thought the photos were interesting to see, even if you don’t know the people.

Mr. Paul Lucas was coach of both teams. It states “he has never once faltered in his plan.”

Not sure what they wore to play the game

Senior Picture Halloween Costume Via Laura

If you follow the blog through FB,  you probably already saw Laura’s Halloween Costume for her party at work.

I thought it was creative and would make a fun post.  She is a “Senior Picture”

Here’s she is-   as photographed by a coworker (Lori, she thinks)    Not a terrific photo credit but that can be rectified tomorrow.

Laura sports her supervisor’s actual High School Senior Photograph, held by paper clips and ribbon.

The look-alike sweater from JC Penney.

(didn’t want to post on the blog until her supervisor said she didn’t mind  🙂  I think she’s a good sport for allowing it)
