Thistle, MD Class Photo abt 1915

Thistle, MD Class Photo abt 1915

While going through the family bible of James Asbury Peeples, my grandfather I found this photo. It appears to be a class picture (one room schoolhouse?) that I would date to about 1915, and would be located in Maryland, perhaps in a location that was then called Thistle, in Baltimore County. It is affixed to the back of a postcard.

There are three Peeples that appear in it, here are all the names listed on the back:
