North School, Girard, Kansas, USA, early 20th century

This is written on the back:

 

This is a picture where Myrl Douglas goes to school he is 6 yrs old. Well Horace what are you doing. Today is Saturday we will be in Girard Tuesday or Wed. We were out to the mines yesterday & to the cemetery. The mines are a dangerous place. When you are walking along you come to big holes you can-not see the bottom of them. Some of them have water in them. It is a noisy place. They are mining between the stores on main street. There is large brick buildings where the ground is all dug out in under it. I should be afraid they would fall in. Well good by for this time.

 

This was in my birthplace hometown Girard, Kansas, USA where I lived for the first 35 years of my life. This school was long gone before I came along. J. T.
