Oklahoma School - 1895
provided by Glenn Thoming
This photo of the Oklahoma School was taken on
October 11, 1895. Mrs. Sarah Love loaned it to the St. Clair Chronicle,
date of publication not known. This picture was digitized from that newspaper
picture and is of very poor quality. It is one more example of an institution
that is rapidly fading from our memory. Perhaps some chance viewer may
have a better picture they would share. (He was almost ashamed to send such
a poor picture but the identification of the students needs to be preserved in
case someone finds the actual photograph).
