Nothing is as authentic as an high school annual. And, it is with that in mind that we put together our new feature showing pages from 80s yearbooks from across the country. Please take a few minutes and scan a few pages in and send them our way!! We will add to this section as often as we receive new submissions so send them in and help us build an archive of totally 80s yearbook samples.
To start we have a page selection from a 1986-1987 annual, where these folks were 10th graders. Even in black and white, you can really get a feel for the era – the hair, the clothes – so perfect at capturing the . . . uh, essence of the 1980s.

The first, her 10th year book picture (1989) is perfect in every way – as 80s as it gets: the hair, the bolo tie, the neon lights in the background – we LOVE it. The second is she and a friend and is equally as authentic. Thanks again, Laurie for sharing these awesome pictures from the 80s!
