Photog: "Everyone hold up your yearbooks."

Girl in Middle: "But I forgot my yearbook!"

Photog: "Just hold your hand up as if you did, and SMILE!"

"Pssst, Helen!"

"Where's your book?"

Hudson School of Car Design

The auto is a 1930 Hudson Sunsedan This was a one year model that was a large two-door convertible. Hudson stated, "Here is a car of many pleasant uses and appeal -- all the smartness with none of the extravagant cost of a special body."

Cost was $1,335 for the beginning part of the model year and $1,045 for the second half of the model year. Weight was 3,100 pounds wheelbase was 119 inches, and the new eight cylinder engine provided 80 horsepower. There was also a similar 1930 Essex Challenger Sunsedan.

Galileo High School

Looks like you nailed the "circa" this time Dave. You can also remove the parenthetical question mark.

Below is a picture (found on eBay) of the June 1930 Telescope yearbook from Galileo High School (now Galileo Academy of Science & Technology) in San Francisco.

Galileo High School?

Galileo High School's (San Francisco) Yearbook is called "The Telescope". I can't find an image online for that design, but they were of similar artistic style.
