South High School in Minneapolis

A couple weeks ago, the Minnesota Historical Society tweeted about this link http://box2.nmtvault.com/Hennepin/ If you visit it, it takes you to digital versions of yearbooks from 1890-1922 from various high schools in Minneapolis. I think I like the old South High School building a little better than the new one. (Granted, the old school couldn't possibly hold all its current students.)

There was a pride and artistry in the original building that you don't see in the blocky/functional newer one.
