Bakersfield High School 1956 Oracle

1956 Oracle in Acrobat
The 1956 Oracle is the yearbook of the Bakersfield High School class of 1956. The 1956 Oracle has been reproduced on CD-ROM in Adobe Acrobat (pdf) format with the individual pages available in jpeg (jpg) format in the images directory.

Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader must be installed prior to viewing the 1956 Oracle. The 1956 Oracle will be automatically displayed upon inserting the CD on computers that are set to play data CD's automatically and with Acrobat Reader installed. A free Acrobat Reader Version 5.1 for Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP is included on this CD-ROM and may be installed by running the Acrobat Reader program (AcroReader51_ENU.exe) because Adobe Acrobat 7.0 only supports Windows 2000 SP2 or XP and does not support the Windows 9x.
