Here's a great photo of the Central arch taken in February 15, 2006 by Aaron Kraus. Double click on it to see a larger version of it on his Flicker account.
Enjoy. Then check out some of the photos of Central alumni posted on the Central Alumni Flickr account and the Central High School Class of 1966 Flickr account. You may also access these account by clicking on the small Flickr flash badges in the right hand column.
I posted a link to Aaron's photo on the Class of 1965 blog last year, but that link went to a blog. I prefer viewing it on Flickr because there's less visual clutter surround it.

Accessing The Madison Mirror online at the DCHS
Before you click on over to the DCHS site to view the online versions of The Madison Mirror, a few words of advice/wisdom/caution:
(1) The link in the middle of the "I Remember Madison Central High" page for title "Read The Madison Mirror" doesn't work; use the one in the sidebar ("View The Madison Mirror") instead.
(2) When you click on the "View The Madison Mirror" link, you'll reach a 32-page PDF document with a list of links to the issues of The Madison Mirror in chronological order. This means you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. Most people do, but if you don't have it, you'll have to install it. Use this link to Adobe for a free download (and uncheck the box for the free eBay Desktop before you start to save space on your hard drive).
(3) BE VERY CAREFUL: Many of the PDF files for individual issues of The Madison Mirror are HUGE. I've found some that are 12 MG. If you're still using a dial-up connect, you probably don't want to try to access any of these PDFs because it will take too long to open them. Even if you have a high-speed connection, you may find that you're unable to open some issues because of the size. Trying to do so may tie up your browser. Note: It's not just me (and I have DSL). Some other alumni have also been trying to open issues of particular interest to them and reported to me that they couldn't.
