First Grade

Dates written on the back of pictures can be wrong. Often those dates are when the print was made rather than when the negative was exposed. I think we can be pretty certain of the 1936 date written on the small slate, though. North Versailles Township is about 12 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, PA in Allegheny County. And for those not from western, Pennsylvania, we pronounce it Ver-sales.

  1. Interesting that there seems to be a lack of joy in this group. Maybe it was just the moment, but they seem somehow subdued and passive.

    I do remember that about the pronunciation of Ver-sales, now that you remind me.
