I dated a Linda Lea in high school, but I don't think it's the same person.





I found this absolutely wonderful photograph a few months ago on eBay.

Second Grade, Grant School, Hollywood (written on blackboard)


eBay

The back of the photograph names Arnold E. Vickroy in the middle row. (I have no idea which is the middle row)

The California Census Records 1940 indicate Arnold E. Vickroy was born in 1902.
Assuming he was about 7 years old in the second grade, the photo dates to about 1909.


further information:

Ground was broken in 1903 for Grant Elementary School at Harold Way and Lomona Avenue (as Wilton Place was then known) for one of the first schools in Hollywood.
The original building, an eight room frame structure, housed all eight grades.

I am drawn to that beautiful winged sculpture. I'd love to know if it still has a place at Grant Elementary.
