School photos become bittersweet mementos of time’s relentless procession, from childhood into adulthood, generation into generation. These days, we take phone-snaps by the dozen the minute anything mildly amusing or significant seems to be going on, and print scarcely any.
School photographs, though, aren’t that different from 40 years ago. Sure, there’s a broader and more exorbitant array of packages on offer, but your classic set of class shot (small ones at the front, tall ones at the back) and individual portraits (with and without front teeth) is the same as ever.
That’s why we’ve collected pictures of different school events.
Best friends, first crushes, favorite teachers and so much more are represented by the people in class pictures. It’s fun to display at home and boosts school pride. Plus, when parents and students look back years from now, they’re sure to enjoy not only seeing how they look, but how everyone else does as well.
