A Shot of an Old Shot.....

I am sharing someone else's photo today. This is an old photo found in an old house in Osceola, Iowa. I have shared it on my Sepia Saturday site but never really looked closely at the photo.  For now I am just remaining curious about the whole photo of a full classroom of students. I am more curious about the photo on the wall on the chalkboard. It looks like a school with a tower on it. I will spend time in the fall studying it all when I quit being so busy.  I think by then a new scanner will help me get a better view of what is on the back wall of the room. As my shot of this photo it proves to be a bad one. I was concentrating on the building and really didn't center the classroom in the picture.

I really had to dig through my old site to find both of these photos. The one above is the old house in the photo. My dad tore it down to build a new house on the lot in 1979.  The photo at right is the one that has cause me to ask many questions.  Can you see the photo of a building on the back board? I identified the photo on my site as being taken in the early 1900's.  I really don't know that to be true but I do wonder if they are sitting in the same building as is on the wall.

Wow- love old class photos and these are really interesting. I would zoom in on that old photo in the middle of the chalkboard and then see if I could find what building it was.
