|Many thanks to Kristi Moffitt for this picture. Please look at it and if you know where it was taken, who is in it or any facts about it please let me know. It says, "Mildred School Picture" on the back. The thought is that it was taken around Lascassas, 1890-1900. (I think it's the Lascassas Advanced School 1896)|
