McKinley Elementary: 1957

McKinley Elementary: 1957

Taken in 1957, west side of Chicago. This was the home room group that graduated with me. I'm the little guy, 2nd row, 2nd from the right. Standing next to me on the left is Finn; we had most of the same classes together, including music, and played in the band together. View full size.

SoCal in 1960

tterrace, in 1960 I completed 6th grade at Emerson Elementary in Long Beach, Ca, and moved on to Stanford Junior High School where I completed 9th grade in 1963. Then onto high school, grades 10-12. Such were the differences between northern and southern California.

Grade 6?

If this is an elementary school graduation photo, then can I assume that these kids just finished Grade 6 and are only 12 years old? Most of them are so elegant and grown-up-looking, I can't believe they could be that young.

[My elementary school, from which I graduated in 1960, was K-8, quite typical of the time. -tterrace]

Might I put the call out to new Shorpy member Msgt to let us know how old he and his classmates were in 1957?
