Going through more pictures

I did get the binding cut for my flannel quilt but I didn't get it sewn on. Instead I went through some more of Dad's black and white negatives. I gave a pack of them to my contact for the historical society yesterday morning and one of the negatives is for this picture. I spent some time when I got home typing up a list of names of all of the kids so they will have that info with the picture in their files.
On my copy I numbered each person with a white pen and then listed the names on the top and bottom of the picture. I am in 5th grade in this picture of the school that was built to consolidate the 5 smaller districts. I'm a little over half way up with a white scarf and light colored jacket and I have my eyes closed. Our 3 teachers for the 60 kids are in the top row.

2 snowstorms predicted for this week. I won't be sad if they miss us.

How wonderful to have these old B&W photos. And how smart you are to label them!

I just love old pictures. We have many framed and hanging on the wall going up our staircase. A family tree of sorts.

That sounds like a fun project. I know the historical society will appreciate the photos too.

What a wonderful photo. You are no. 35.
All the kids look warm and cosy rugged up in their winter clothes.

I love old black & white photos. I have a number from when my parents were very young.

I made it through 3 grades in a one-room school until they consolidated - that meant buses.

I was in a class of four for those first three years. Seems to me there were about a dozen students in all 8 grades there, but a couple grades not represented.

I loved watching the lessons for the older grades. It was the same one-room school that my dad attended. He remembers most being able to look out the window and daydream. *L*

Great photo and you can remember the names? Wow. We had snow here on Friday, lots of it. Today it was -29 C this morning, but the sun is shining - so deceptive!

Oh yes, I can see you. Wow! 3 teachers for 30 kids. That sounds like a nice ratio for actually learning something!!!
