Liberty, New York History

Liberty, NY through the years

What came before high school yearbooks?   

As far as we've been able to find, rather little.  One example is this rarity -- a 1906 "Souvenir"  from the neighboring Neversink, NY schools. (Hard to believe that high school yearbooks originated in this form, isn't it!)
