Photo Number 618

This is a photo from the Antique Shop in Dorset.

Consolidated school district Dorset Antiques

It is a horse drawn school bus. I think it says ------? Consolidated School Dist. 42   Route No. 2


Consolidated school district Dorset Antiques

Here I have perked up the print a bit.   Al is a Canadian reader that loves these challenges..perhaps he is still reading..and can figure it out!

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. I've never seen a photo like this one, Connie. I love it!

  2. I've never seen a photo like this one either! And wow! are those kids crammed into that wagon!

  3. Those kids were so lucky to have a school bus. I am sure the distances were just to far for them to walk. It is a marvelous photo.

  4. Al sent me an email, he thinks it may say Badger School District..I will send him a higher resolution photo and see if that helps to see it better:)

  5. I found a reference to a Consolidated School District 42.

    A Charles A. Hausler "Photograph of pencil and ink" of one of the school buildings is: about 1/4 the way down the page.

    The school districts must have been renumbered since Badger is no longer #42.

  6. The wheels on the wagon go round and round.
    round and round,
    round and round.

  7. Mama told me about riding a buck board to school behind a horse named "Old Nell." Old Nell had a flatulence problem - so the ride was never without entertainment.

    Mama said that once she had some gas and all the kids teased her by calling her "Old Nell"
