Washington, PA elementary school, about 1930

Washington, PA elementary school, about 1930

We think the young girl standing next to the teacher is Anna Belle Waltz. These students look to be about 10-11 years old. That would put the date at about 1931-1932. Assuming that there were more than one elementary school in Washington in the 1930s, the Waltz family lived on Campbell Avenue. This would be the school in that area of the city.

Grade school in Washington, PA

Noticed this picture and since Campbell Ave. is near Fifth Ward grade school thought it might be that one. It isn't. I have a picture of that school and the front steps are quite different. There was a 2nd Ward school not far from Campbell Ave. and I remember it had steps and pillers. I went to Fifth Ward School in the 1960's.
