U.S. School Clothes: Lincoln School (Unknown state)


Figure 1.-- we do no know where this particular Lincoln School was located, other than it was somewhere in the North. For a century, Lincoln was a hated name in the South. We do know that the cabinet card portrait was taken in 1896. This Lincoln School seems go be a small country school. We do not see the school, only the the students and teacher. They seem to be the older students. As was fairly common in the country, many of the boys wear long pants ar a time tht knee pants were fairly standard for boys in cities. Also intersting is the number of boys who had bikes. This as an indication of the affluence that America was achieving. You would not have seen that at a comparable European school.

There seem to be more schools name after Presidnt Lincoln than any other other American, president or otherwise. And this is a name that the PC crowd is unlikely to want to change, although we notice a range of wholly invalid criticisms.
