What made them so sad?

Probably the threat of 2000 lines of "I will not misbehave" on the chalkboard

Barefoot boys

The boys in the back are barelegged and don't appear to be wearing shoes, although it's hard to see. This is quite a sullen looking group even for the time.

Meeting In The Cemetery

Looks like some Zombies in the group.

The Common Theme

Of these Shorpy New Hampshire school photos is, "Gimme OLD Hampshire, now and how!"

[These school photos are more likely from Connecticut. -Dave]

They would much rather be somewhere else

Like working in the mill, or the coal mine, or maybe selling newspapers.


... straight out of Central Casting.


The boy in front of Teacher looks like he's about to get a smack in the back of his head for something.

A really good shew

Young Ed Sullivan, back row, second from left.

Anne of Green Gables

She's sitting on the rock.

I wonder

What made them so mad/sad?
