Most schools in the United States begin next week, right after Labor Day! I couldn't find any fun postcards about Labor Day--so I thought I would concentrate on the beginning of school. This is a Tuck's postcard from 1910! Tuck's postcards are wonderful. This one made me smile.
My Grandfather attended school in a tiny one-room school house. My Mother and her brothers studied in that same small classroom. By the time I came along, the town had built an elementary school for all eight grades. In seventh and eighth grade our choir class was held in the small spot where Grandpa and Mom attended school. Later, my own children attended there--my eldest daughter's fourth grade class was in my first grade classroom.
Today the school, where I once learned my sums, was torn down and the one room school house is long gone. An Albertson's grocery store sits where the shouts of children once rang out during recess. However, the "woods" where we played stands nearly unchanged--the tall fir trees still shade the parking lot.
Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
