Sandy Spring School

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 17 December 2017 in Miscellaneous.

Last week I went to see a photography exhibit at the Sandy Spring Museum. They also have some permanent displays that showcase the history of the community. This is a classroom that once was part of the old Sandy Spring School.

Gérard Flayol from Allauch, France

Yes, I almost knew that! But I wonder what this drawing represents on the slate of the first desk .....

@Gérard Flayol: When I went home and saw the picture, I was wondering that too! Some school kids were probably on a field trip of the museum and the teacher was not paying close attention!

It's fascinating to see these old desks that I recall using long ago.:-) I don't think we had chalk and a surface to write on. A very interesting post.
