Picturing the Past 105: Where was this school?Posted Tuesday, April 5, 2011, at 11:37 AM
A school building, thought to be Wartrace Elementary School, in what is believed to be the 1920s. Further info is needed. (Photo submitted by James Justice)
I was planning to post a much newer photo today but got an unexpected visit this morning from a man who is preparing to publish a family history book.
James Justice of College Grove has this unidentified photo from a scrapbook which, going by other photos within, appears to be from the 1920s.
He would appreciate any information on this building, which he said he believed was in Wartrace and was grouped with other family photos made in that area.
Go here for a larger view.
Once I blew up the very small photo in Photoshop "Wartrace" became clearly, if dimly, visible in the white marble area above the double white doors on the left side of the building. I can't make out for sure what's on the second line, but running it through several Photoshop filters it looks like 'Elementary School.'
Contact James at 615-368-7174 or P.O. Box 39, College Grove, TN 37046 if you can help -- and post your information here as well.
