Albany State’s team nickname used to be the Pedagogues. In the 1970s it was changed to the Great Danes, and now the college is known as the University at Albany.
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.
I’m guessing this was not a popular seller among the students, faculty and alumni of Washington Irving High School.
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.
