Linking with Tom's Tuesday's Treasures


  1. ...what a classy looking school. We have a number of them that are similar in this community, what treasures! Thanks for stopping by, come again please.

  2. Kids back in school there now? Start of school was delayed here in MD by order of governor until after Labor Day.

    1. yes we started school on the 9th...crazy...i want you governor! as a kid we never started till the tuesday after labor day...don't know what this august nonsense is about anyway!

  3. Nice to see that they are still using this building.

  4. It did look very much like it does now. I like the arched doorways and the fancy brickwork on the edges.
