Even the youngest “fish” of the freshman class would be a centenarian now. But in the Poly High School yearbook of 1924 these students remain forever young, perpetually studious, goofy, and intense in ways that we thought we invented.
Here are some pages from the yearbook when the school was on Nashville Avenue in the 1922 building that would become Poly Elementary and then a vacant lot.

Maurine Martel would still be at Poly forty years later. Martel and music teacher Charles X. O’Brien composed and arranged the school song. And manual training teacher J. P. Moore would survive the splinters of woodshop to become superintendent of Fort Worth schools.
