Back To School Imagery from 1910

Today's post might seem a bit out of synch if you live back east. Hereabouts, though, classes will soon start, so we thought we'd offer these two images today.
The first is a trio of girls sharing a book. They all look delighted, don't they? This comes in both colorways.  And our second offering comes with two looks, both black and white, one with a heading beneath the classroom picture, and one without. All of our offerings this time come at 400dpi, which means they may well surprise you with how clearly each may enlarge for your use.
Here's to Back-To-School Time!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Amy! Thanks for stopping by!
So glad you like these. I'm particularly favoring the trio of young readers in B&W.
Haven't found uses for these--glad you could.
Happy Sunday

the 3 little girls are just so sweet!!! perfect for back to school,friendship, perhaps used to decorate an item for a female teacher(I'm thinking pencil/pen cup or box..or maybe a notepad cover. The page frame image could be used in the same way. I think I'll use it to keep track of important school reminders..much prttier on the fridge than the ugly papers they come home on!!!
thanks so much Rose!! xoxo

Ann: Great ideas!! Why didn't we think of them? Love your fridge door idea! I can recall all those less than pleasing papers sent home by teachers. And the clutter from all that paper made it necessary to keep track separately. Wish we'd known each other way back when. ;)
Y'know, a child could easily make a pencil holder for a teacher using the 3 girls. It's make a great, simpler gift, one not meant to butter up, but as a sweet reminder of a student's liking for that teacher.......
