Madeline's Memories Is Back!

Vacations and Life have kept me from posting new memories.  But today I am back with a fun post. 

This is one of Madeline's school pictures.  I'm guessing high school age.  She looks so studious, but don't let that deceive you! 

This is one of Madeline's second grade reading workbooks.  Maybe it's before the mimeograph was invented as my memories of second grade are individual worksheets.  (And that's as far as I will go about second grade; not good memories for me. ) 

"Looseleaf Education, Inc." --love it!  Book was published in 1927.

A sample page

This page goes along with a little story on safety.

The second book in the series.

Things are getting a little harder! 

One of Madeline's drawings from the book.

And here is a bonus photo for you:

I believe the "James" pointed out is Madeline's father, James Farmer.  Here's the back of the photo:

Photo taken at the Elmwood School in Providence around 1895.
