A view inside the school. Notice the paddle hanging up by the window!

Oh ...Superb and very traditional ! In my early childhood my school looked like this and I had to dip the feather in the ink...

@Mhelene: The changes from that time to now is sometimes overwhelming to even think about. I am glad that these one room school houses are being saved.

Brings back thoughts of inkwells full of soaking blotting paper and sundry painful knuckle raps and caning. Learning was literally a painful process in those days :)

The B&W is perfect for this. It gives it a timeless appeal. I would not want to experience that paddle!

A cool interior shot. I remember those desks except they were all singles in the school I attended. The inkwells, notches, and initials carved in them were the same. ;-)

As a retired school teacher of 33 years, and the fact that my mother taught in a little school much like this, I can really relate the this. Great shot.

Nice B&W work. I see each student got his/her own iPad precursor. Of course, they were much better for input than searching, had limited storage, and those darn white styli wore out too quickly.

Fine interior shot To show us what the school desks looked like. An excellent job of focusing and exposure.
