Old photographs are a source of ongoing inspiration at MRKstyle, and today we came across an unlikely source for these treasured images: the yearbook. Oftentimes, yearbooks are shoved in storage closets where they gather dust and remain unopened for decades. This is a shame, as they are portals for visual archaeology.
Case in point: These black and white images from a 1971 yearbook that belonged to a young woman in Richmond, Virginia (via the amazing Need Supply blog).
“Miss Legs 1971″
There are so many stories and moods captured in these low-grade snapshots. It reminds us there is a reason to hang onto those yearbooks after all and maybe even copy and frame a few of the images inside.
