Watts School


Watts School


Sepia-toned image of a group of students gathered in front of a small, one-room school house with a church visible just beyond the building. The younger students, mostly boys, are seated on the ground, and the older students stand in three rows behind them. Most of the boys wear suit coats and many wear hats. The girls wear short dresses with puffed sleeves, most gathered at the waist. Watts School served students west of Forest Grove. See WCMpic_015632, WCMpic_015635, and WCMpic_015634 for other images of this school. The blue ink 'X' on the front may indicate that the small boy at the end of the row who is scratching his nose is the 'Roy Wilson' named on the back.
