U.S. School Clothes: Harris Middle School (San Antonio, Texas)


Figure 1.--The Harris Middle School was located in San Antonio, Texas. Middle schools meant different age groups from state to state. They were similat, but not identical to junior highs. I'm not sure about the age group here, but would guess about age 12. The portrait may have been taken in the 1931-32 school year, although we can not be positive.

The Harris Middle School was located in San Antonio, Texas. Middle schools meant different age groups from state to state. They were similat, but not identical to junior highs. I'm not sure about the age group here, but would guess about age 12. The portrait may have been taken in the 1931-32 school year, although we can not be positive. Texas at the time had segregated schools with blacks and whites in different schools. I think in some school districts Hispanic childen wee segregated, but I am not sure about this. The expense of operating separate school systems probably limited this. Noyce boys wearing overalls, long pants, amd knickers. The boy in the front wear kickers with ankle socks. This began to be more common as knicker declined in poplsrity during the late 1930s. fewer boys had kneesocks. A factor here is that San Antonia is located in the south and it can be quite warm.
