Oak Park Image Archive This site contains a visual history of Oak Park High School (Kansas City, Missouri) from 1965 to 2003. Most of the images were scanned from the Cambia yearbook negatives, and a few are from the Log newspaper negatives. You can see how people, fashions, the community, and the environment have changed through the years.
