School Photographs:

"Craft School"

Mrs. Ruby Leach, RR 1, Box 746, West Liberty, KY 41472, shares this old scene dated 1911. It is simply labeled "Craft School, 1911, W.B. Barker." Mr. Barker was probably the teacher. It is believed the Craft School was once located in Morgan County. However, readers having more knowledge may contact Mrs. Leach. Sadly, no names, other than Mr. Barker's, are known. Not only students, but parents and friends are shown in this photo. Because getting one's photo made was a rare thing in 1911, It was the practice in those days for parents and friends to gather when a school photo was to be made.
