Back To School

Yes, it’s true. Summer is over. While the official end of the season is not for another week, as we move past Labor Day, our thoughts turn from planning outings to the pool and beach to endless trips to Staples and Target for school supplies and uniforms. In honor of the back to school season, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share with you photos from our collections. Just a quick peruse through our database demonstrates the sheer volume of pictures from both secular and religious schools. I especially loved the photos from earlier generations and was delighted to find some from as far back as the 1890s. As we all come to terms with the loss of summer, I hope you will enjoy these photos as much as I do (perhaps in between another dash to the supermarket for lunch supplies!)
