1939 Album of Cards of Graduates of Rising Sun High School, Maryland


Album, approximately 9" x 5-3/4", filled with cards of, I assume, graduates of the Class of 1939 at Rising Sun High School in Maryland.  I wonder if this Rising Sun High School is the same one.


Inside the front cover is a manufacturer's label and an invitation to the graduation exercises to be held on June 15, 1939.




There's also an invitation pasted on the first page.




There's one blank page.  The rest of the leaves contain, on one side, four cards, except for the last page, which contains two.  There are two duplicate cards.

    It is the same school, different location. The old high school located in the actual town of Rising Sun is now the middle school. Paul Freeman Rawlings was my grandfather (he passed away in 2007). Thank you for sharing, I miss him everyday and this was a great way to see a piece of his past!
