Sepia Saturday: More School Days

Since everyone seemed to enjoy last week's school photo, I thought I would post another class picture from my paternal grandmother's elementary school days for Sepia Saturday this week.  Although the quality in this one is not as good, you can still see some interesting faces in this crowd.  My Gram is on the bottom row, second in from the right side.  I think the girl to our right of her on the end of that row is the same girl that is to the left of her in last week's photo.  Again, we are somewhere in New Jersey in the early 1920s.


I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  If you have some time, stop by Sepia Saturday to reminisce about the old days a little more.

This is a beautiful School photo. It is interesting to see how neatly they are dressed, their expressions and Miss teacher looks very up to date. I am wondering do they still do class photos today. Because I have not seen any from my grand children.

The short girls were always in front. I know. I was always in front. Oh, to be tall and lithe!

36 children and one teacher. I began teaching in the 60's and my first class was 42 eleven year old girls. A lot of names to learn on the first day.

Miss Teacher looks very smart doesn't she and the children's expressions are so varied, many are happy, others look bored and some are just staring into space. Your Gram looks so cute.

Wonderful photograph, thank you so much for sharing it with us. You could write a entire PhD thesis on hair styles based on it alone.

Yes, the class size is interesting.....smaller than I would have expected.
It's a Great Photo! I like the fact that it's a good mixture\ balance between "formal" + "informal" .They Look A Happy Bunch!
