This is a school photograph from my mother's childhood.
I keep it on a shelf in my study.
My mother is the girl with a checked dress in the center above. She has a locket hanging from a chain. I wonder what happened to that.
Mom was born in December 1918 so in March 1927 when this photo was taken she would have been 8 years old.
It was a one room school house there in Bausman Township outside of Lancaster, PA. Mom ended up skipping a grade or two because there was only the one big class with one teacher.
This is a photo I will treasure and pass on.
