Marion, MA

This school is still open and has changed little from this 80+ year old view. In fact, here is a link to the current school lunch menu, this week featuring franks and beans.

In Italiano: La scuola tuttora è aperta e ha cambiato pochino in una ottantina d’anni. Infatti, c’è un link al menù per pranzo, questa settimana dotato di hot dog e fagioli.

Fredonia, NY

Today’s post is a small reminder of a time when we took greater pride in public infrastructure. Fredonia’s high school was a big enough deal that you’d send colorized photos of it through the mail. The schools I attended in the 1970s and 80s never appeared on postcards, to the best of my recollection.
