Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Fascinating photo!

    Is that the cloak room behind on the left? I think I see a row of bonnets.

  2. How interesting that the photo identifies the class as "Primary" and the teacher's name, but not the name or location of the school, itself!

    With so many names clearly listed, here's hoping this photograph finds a home soon!

  3. Excellent find. Class photographs where everyone is identified are so rare.

  4. Christina Shimonek nee Zak (1894 - )
    Her sister, labeled Ulie was Julie Dahl nee Zak (1892 - )

    Clide Ufidegraph is likely Updegraff
