    • Julie it is so nice to be able to document the history of your village and old photos are a big part of it and make it more "real" for those who read the stories. My husband has been doing this for the small village he grew up in. A village of about 600 people and there were 4 bakeries, a grocery store, 2 elementary schools, 2 churches, a butcher, a bus service and later a garage with a petrol station. Now there live ca 1200 people and there is nothing , not even a bus!
    • There aren't many pix of me at any school, but I have lots of images of the village where I grew up b/c I research and write about it in history articles. Schools were so important in rural areas. Even the simplest and less fortunate families wanted their children to be better educated than they were. Our village got a beautiful new Continuation School (up to Grade 10) in 1909. It was a serious blow when that burned down in 1942, leaving teachers and pupils with no where to go. A new public school was built in less than two years, but the upper grades (to Grade 13) had to make do for SEVEN YEARS with classes in a rundown hotel. There are so many stories from those years! It was a major achievement by and for that village to get a district high school approved and opened in late 1949. It was equally heartbreaking when it was closed and then demolished. No more high school there since then. Students are bused to other area secondary schools.
    • I got tall around age 12, grew some more, and almost made it to 6', but not quite. I think now I am going the other way? And, it IS long ago!
    • yes, Michele....enquiring minds want to know.
    • This is great, I love the contrast of the black and white.  I gives the feeling of long ago.  You are tall, how lucky !
