Old yearbooks have become pictures of the past and some of the pictures are important. Right now in Searcy AR a group has formed to try to "Save the Rialto." The Rialto is an old movie theater that has been on the same block corner for years and years. It is still in operation and anyone who lives or lived in Searcy loved going there. Almost every year book had a picture of the Rialto in the advertisement section.
This one is from the 1963 yearbook and has a large crowd in front. Perhaps the Searcy Sleuths can recognize and identify some of them. Girls were still wearing bobby socks it seems and I'll bet the guy on the left took a lot of teasing about his pose. He may have inspired Michael Jackson.
P. S. Looking a little more closely, you discover that the hand is actually the girl's hand!! Both would have been teased.
