Sedwick School School Photo 1954

This is a photo of the entire school and teaching staff at my primary school  during my 3rd grade.  The school was Sedwick and was at the corner of US 67 and Burgess road in Mercer County, Illinois.

Sedwick School 1954


I am the 3rd from the front in the middle row.   My, how much simpler the World was then.  In 3rd grade we still had no inside bathroom and used an outhouse, no TV, a “party line” phone where everyone had a different ring, and we all took a bath every Saturday night from the same portable copper bathtub we hauled into the dining room.  The youngest always had to take the last bath and by then the water was pretty dirty and not too hot.  And Gwen wonders why I do not like to take a bath.
