Deconstructing SCHOOL CHILDREN: The End

Within this class photo there is a mystery, a photo of a woman being held by the last little boy in the top row. I'm guessing it's of the teacher. I wonder who decided to do this? Another teacher, a student, the principal? Was the teacher just out sick the day the shot was taken? Had she passed on? Left town in a hurry? I don't think I've ever seen a class photo with a photo in it.

This is the end of the class of Pala 1942.

I don't know about you, but I'm thinking this little girl never took any guff from anybody.

  1. I hope she was just out sick that day.

  2. Eagle eye spotting! And good scanning too!

  3. I just looked through all the class photos and I love that you deconstructed the photograph. I was impressed at how wholesome the children looked to me. When you do the other 2 (or is it 3) class photographs, I think it would be very interesting to see a post for each child with photos from all the years on the same screen. Keep up your great work sharing your old photos. I thoroughly enjoy looking at them.
