Wordless (nearly) Wednesday - Country School Step

One room school, Willow #3, Willow Township, Greene Co, Iowa,  perhaps 1946... That is my little brother, beside me... so this is fall of 1946, he'd be two and half, I'd be seven.

That's me in the suspenders, on the right. Really dressed up that day - must have been first day of new school year, perhaps.

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. So this is your class photo? How cool!

  2. Great photo. My mom attended a one room school house in the 1940s in Maine and her Mom was the teacher!!

  3. I am fascinated by one and two rooms schools and when I am driving around or on vacation, you just know when I see one, out comes my camera. I do have a blog on one we found near Dubois, PA. Need to get that written!

  4. I love this picture. It reminds me of the pictures of the one-room school my mother and her siblings attended in Texas.
