Savage Elementary School, Grade 3, 1964-65

Savage Elementary School, Grade 3, 1964-65
An elementary school photo taken by a professional photographer for the Vintage Photos Theme Park.

Sign: "Savage Elementary School, Mrs. Rhoads, Grade 3, 1964-65." Studio name on accompanying photo folder: "Mealey - Maryland."

Although some students undoubtedly find their school to be a savage and unforgiving place, the name of this Savage Elementary School came from its location in the town of Savage, Maryland.

The students have assembled in the library for their class photo. Some of the books on display on the top shelf behind them include Hercules: The Story of an Old-Fashioned Fire Engine (1940), A Fly Went By (1958), The Little Twin (1953), Stagecoach Sam (1940), and Caps for Sale (1940).

Many of the students are wearing red-colored clothing, but the boy standing at the end of the fourth row in the upper right-hand corner of the photo is dressed in a grey shirt and pants with a "U.S. Army" patch over one shirt pocket.

Similarly, the boy sitting on the floor at the end of the first row in the lower right-hand corner is wearing a blue uniform-like outfit with an "Air Force" patch on his shirt.

Finally, notice how the boy at the end of the third row closed his eyes and scrunched up his face as the photographer snapped the picture.

une photo émouvante et très intéressante. Elle peut donner aux historiens futurs des éléments de recherche : pourquoi mettre les quatre garçons au premier rang en bas ? pourquoi beaucoup plus de filles que de garçons....etc...etc...

I know I left a note on this photo but it disappeared. Love the colors and the eager faces of these Rhoads scholars, Ellie!
