Schoolchildren Posing in Front of a Blackboard, Perry County, Pa.

Schoolchildren Posing in Front of a Blackboard, Perry County, Pa.
A photo of children for the Vintage Photos Theme Park.

An undated photo by Morrows Studio, Newport, Perry County, Pa., shows schoolchildren posing in front of a blackboard.

The expressions on the kids' faces range from angelic sweetness to stoic forbearance to utter impatience. My favorite is the girl sitting third from left in the front row (mouse over the image to see a close-up view of her and some of the other children). Her dramatically amusing appearance--with puffed-out cheeks, bulging eyes, and a hand over her stomach--either indicates that she's going to be sick or that she's ready for the photo session to be over.

they are so different in age - is this a one-classroom-school?

Yes, I think it was taken at a one-room schoolhouse! I believe the teacher may be the woman in the middle of the back row, though she looks young enough to be a student, too.

I'm torn between her and the mesmerised looking girl in plaid.

What a remarkable photo! I love the clothing, black stockings, sturdy boots, hair bows and the old blackboard.

Thanks very much! I've been wondering how that hole got into the middle of the blackboard.
