Individual American Schools: North School (Washington)


Figure 1.--We are not entirely sure about the name of the school, but we think it is the North School. We are sure that it was school near Seattle. The photograph is not dated, but it looks to us like the esrly-1880s, even the 70s. Notice the rounded crown hats and lumberjack caps. We do not see any of the pore modern styles like peaked and flat caps. And note the long pants most of the boys wear. Many of the girls wear pinafores. This a little unusual. Normally the childten are lined up neatly in front of the school. The school marm looks to be standing to the right of the door. There is a lot of children for one teacher, but we don't see any other.

We are not entirely sure about the name of the school, but we think it is the North School. We are sure that it was school near Seattle. It looks to be in the country, but Seattle was not a large city in the late-19th century. The photograph is not dated, but it looks to us like the esrly-1880s, even the 70s. Outdoor school photographs at the time were not common so we are not sure about the date. The clothes look like the early-80s to us, but we welcome reader assessments.
