I forgot to bump this up last year. That must be why Santa left coal in my stocking.

Thirty years ago I was delivering paper goods to a Revco or Eckerds or something on Alta Mesa. On the delivery door was a bumper sticker for Ranger Bob's Secret Lab. I think it had a cartoon of a castle against a black sky. I assumed it was a club, if an oddly named one. I never saw another sticker like that, nor heard anyone talk about it but I've always been intrigued at the memory of that sticker and wondered what Ranger Bob's Secret Lab could have been. Well, tonight I finally know! Thanks for clearing that up.
At Ties 2 The Past, an antique mall on Camp Bowie, a dealer has in a display case a Ranger Bob's sticker just like the one I saw on that drugstore delivery door lo those many years ago.
Oswald would be in the 1957 Yellow Jacket, not 1956, but he's not even in that one, most likely dropping out before class pictures were taken.
Actually, he is on page 104 in one of those candid shots that get funny captions, he just has no class mugshot.
Central's address is 500 West Third Street. The local history and genealogy section is on the lower floor way back in the west end. They do have city directories back to the 19th century. I tried to post a link to them but I can't seem to do that on this computer at the Benbrook library.
The old library has been a parking lot for forty years now. Sad, but even that one stood on the site of a still earlier Carnegie library.
I went to the FWISD archives once and got a tour of it. I was interested in yearbooks; a hobby of mine is looking for local yearbooks and donating them to the FWPL.
At the central library yesterday I looked through a selection of old telephone directories and got the following:
