"Walking Through History…School Days Revisited"

Students in Santa Ynez Valley Union High School EAST (Environmental and Spatial Technology) class were given a project to “blend” high school history with the present day using computer technology and their own unique style of creativity.

What transpired was a fun graphic display of historic photos taken at Santa Ynez Valley High School during the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s which have been melded with photos of the exact same building or place on campus taken today in 2012.

For their project the students used photos from old high school scrapbooks (dating from the 1930’s to the 1950’s) which had been unearthed from an old storage room last fall. They then applied a multi-step photo shop process to format the “now” and “then” photos into a composite scene.

This amazing exhibit is an excellent example of current technology used for the purpose of perserving history in a form that engages the viewer to actually “see” the past in direct contrast to how it looks today.
