Tuesday's Treasures #1

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.  
Linking with Tom for Tuesday's Treasures.
