Photo tucked away in a 1965 Bluffton HS yearbook
Yes, it's a classic pose. And, important enough to be spread over two pages.
Here's a photograph from the 1966 Bluffton High School yearbook. It was taken from above the entrance way to the old gym - believe it, once upon a time there was only one gym.
In our opinion, this photograph is a well-composed piece. It’s more than a simple snapshot. And, the models in the photo represent an interesting cross-section of student activities and attitudes. This photo wasn’t simply a “go to the cafeteria and grab a dozen students for a yearbook photo.” There appears to be a purposeful selection and composition to this scene.
We'll attempt an identification. (Viewers are always smarter than we are in these ID projects. We welcome viewer corrections.)
