1946 Franklin Graduating Class, A Section.

Historical Note: During the 1940s there were many students who needed to be taught-- too many for the school. As a result, grades were split into "A and B Sections" and taught af different times. In fact, Franklin was the only school in the district with A/B Sections. This picture is of the Graduating A Section. Somewhere on the planet in a dusty chest, there is likely a B Section Photograph. Maybe you have it? Special thanks to Scott Stewart and Bud and Lynne (Stewart) Moore for this photograph.
