The photographer who took this picture, took this same class, from the same teacher, in this same classroom at Birmingham High in 1968. Even the tables are the same. Back then, the student population of Birmingham High School was nearly all white; today, it's very diverse, with many Latino and Asian students. Many famous people attended and graduated from this high school, such as: Michael Milkin, John Davidson, Lucy Arnaz, Sally Field, Bobby Sherman, and Cindy Williams, to name but a few. The school was built on the site of Birmingham General Hospital and was acquired by Los Angeles City Schools in the early 1950s for the token price of $1.00. It was founded in 1953 as a 7-12 grade combined high school, and became solely a senior high school in 1963. Photograph dated April 8, 2002.
