This 1953 photograph shows part of the old gym and kids mingling on the corners. It was taken from Mt. Vernon Street. There is a flagless flag pole above the entry, perhaps because of inclimate weather. The flag pole was later moved to a spot on the east lawn. Bob Mosher identified the black automobile on the corner as the one belonging to teacher, Gerald L. Saling. Special thanks to the Spokesman Review and Chronicle for this and other photographs.
