A Table of Contents was also added. I have to laugh that the section called The Waste Basket (“joshes” from the students) was put together by The Janitor.
J.W. Warner must have been a pretty special coach and manager to get his own page in The Owl.
And here he is with the 1907 Fresno High football team.
Back row, left to right: Wheaton, McCollister, Tufts, McNulty, Laning, Ruschhaupt, Warner (Coach)
Front row, left to right: Morgan, Prather, Collins (Captain), Grimes, Barber
This picture is not from the 1907 Owl but, rather, one I discovered of the 1914 Fresno High School Basketball team. That’s Coach Warner on the right – a double sport coach!
I just love looking at the ads. Apparently the dentists have overtaken the undertakers as big advertisers. Crowns for $4.00!
Nice picture of the interior of the Hughes Hotel. I can visualize (my dad’s favorite expression) the guests all dressed up for a nice meal before retiring for the night.
Check out these golf shirts – can you imagine dressing in one of these for a hot Fresno day on the links? At least it would only set you back $1.00-$2.00.
Finally the advertisers are marketing the young ladies! A quick google search didn’t bring up any information on Fitzese shoes but it sounds like a popular brand for the times.
I wonder if Neil=White Fitzese shoes. Whatever brands they carried I’m sure they were all swell!
A swagger nobby suit? At least they were only a ‘trifle more’ than the ordinary kind of suit.
More clothes! But again, marketing the men. At least they have lots of options for stylish clothes.
In December even a little more color was added. So festive. Unfortunately, the red ink seems to have run on some of the pages. I guess that’s what more than 100 years will do.
Floyd Laning took over for the Janitor in The Wastebasket.
I love the graphics on this page. Quite a few kids wore the “F” and several received their letter for more than one sport. I sure wish I’d find a Levy on one of these pages.
I would love to see what the pin of “neat and latest design” looked like. So nice that they set the price so that it was within reach of all students. I wonder if my grandfather or his brothers ever had a Fresno High School pin.
I realize this was the Christmas edition but glasses as a Christmas gift? At least J.M. Crawford would help to manage the surprise.
If you didn’t want to give glasses as a gift, how about something from McAfee-Hickman? They were having a sale – 25 cents off on Suits and Overcoats until Christmas.
This is an interesting photo to use in an advertisement for the “best fitter in the state”. I’m not quite sure how this relates.
Again, focusing on the boys. But these shoes are swell, don’t you think?
Need an overcoat to go with those fancy shoes?
In just the few years of The Owl that I have, I have seen quite a change in the fashion and advertisers. I can’t wait until I get to my parents’ era to see how much things will have changed over 35-40 years.
