U.S. Schools: Caton's Chapel Elementary School (Tennessee)


Figure 1.--This class photo was taken in 1954 at Caton's Chapel Elementary School in Sevierville, Tennessee. In mid-1950s most of boys and girls still attend in bare feet. Often it was more common for the boys to go barefoot. This was becoming less common in Americas, but we still see boys mostly in the southern sastes attending barefoot. Also notice that the boys all wear long pasnts despite the fact that it was a warm day. One boy wears overalls. These look like the younger children in the school, presumably 1st and 2nd graders.

First time I noticed that in the 1950s."
