Inscription on blackboard "2nd grade Salisbury PA"
Date of photographs unknown but believed to have been taken in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

This photograph was probably taken the same day as the above picture - the teacher is the same minus the hat.  If you notice
the curtain in the window it is exactly the same in both pictures. We know that they are Salisbury students because of the inscription on the
blackboard in the first picture.

The following two pictures are of the same class - once again I believe these photographs were taken on the same day as the prior
ones.  The background is different but the clothing is the same.

thomas school

The “Thomas School” located in Elk Lick Township approximately two miles south of Salisbury, Pa on old Route 219 South. The picture was taken during the 1926 – 1927 school year. Based on paper cutouts of chicks and rabbits in the front windows, it was taken in the spring of 1927 during the Easter Holiday.  The teacher at the one room school was Rip Engle.
The school was purchased in 1938 by Ken Thomas (one of the students pictured) and was converted to a one story home.  It was purchased by Warren Oester in 1947 and Warren and his wife still live there today (November, 2007).
