Oh My God
This was published TODAY.
"Wells has been told many stories about how the school looked and the routines that were followed by both former students and teachers, many details of which she’s preserved in a scrapbook.
“The schoolhouse was heated by a pot-bellied stove that was right in the centre of the room. There were two cloakrooms, one for girls and one for boys, on either side of the front door. The teacher’s desk sat at the front of the room with a blackboard behind it as well as one on each wall. Some school years, there were as many as 40 children taught here at one time."
I'm truly astounded.
