My 5th grade classroom in Worthington, Ohio

I took the photo in late 1937, when I was 13 and in 7th grade ,shortly before the building was demolished for a new school. Apparently, a spelling bee was underway and 5 pupils remained. Do schools still have these?

The door at the right led to a cloakroom. All our grade school rooms in Worthington had these. I believe they're been replaced by lockers in newer schools.. The painting (left) is Whistler's Mother.

I have good mrmories of 5th grade and teacher, Miss Norma Grener. She was new that year and an inspirational teacher.
