Adopt an Ancestor – Antiques Graphics Wednesday

It’s been a few weeks since I posted
any antique graphics,
so if you love them, my apologies
for not posting them recently and
if they bore you to tears…my apologies for that too!

Right click on the photos
to save them for future use on your projects.

Today’s graphics come from
a 1911 yearbook from Morningside College
in Sioux City, Iowa.

I like to think of these as
adopt-an-ancestor” photos.

If you don’t have any photos
of Great-aunt Lucille, and wish you did –
claim one of these folks as your ancestor.
Who knows…you could be distantly related to them!

Imagine wearing this outfit in PE class!

There was a section for
advertising at the back of the yearbook.

A closeup of the pen ad.
I hope you enjoy these 100 year old images 
as much as I do.
Please give me a “thumbs up or down”
on whether you’d like more from the yearbooks.
I have quite a few of these antique yearbooks
and will post more if there is an interest in them.
Let me know your preference – 
individual portraits, group portraits, sports, clubs, advertisements, etc.
Just a heads-up – if you would like originals
of these and more pages like these, 
I have sets of 25 of these pages 
available in my Etsy shop!
I also have more Antique Music Pages
which look gorgeous on projects.


I can frequently be found visiting these parties.

  1. Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE it… We adopt ancestors ALL the time… Matter of fact for the longest time our children use to think that Miss Hazel Dawn was their Distant Cousin…. She is a GORGEOUS Portrait Painted on Silk in Frame… I found her several years ago at a local antique shop and though the Price was steep it was worth paying to get our Ancestor out of Hock… 🙂 Lovely photos and thanks for sharing..

  3. This images are lovely! I love the advertisements, such great collection. Thank you for sharing them.
    Happy Holidays. FABBY

  4. Adopt an ancestor… cute idea! I bet 100 years ago the youth of that yearbook had no idea they would be on display in cyberspace being adopted into random families! I wonder what will happen with copies of my high school year books 100 years from now (or rather then… almost 1/4 century down at this point). It’s fun t see old photos and wonder about the people and their lives 🙂 Lucille Warnock was quite gorgeous, don’t you think?

  5. Angie,
    Love the yearbook pics!!
    Hey, like the idea of advertising i the yearbooks too. Wonder if they do that here.
