From Sharon McKenzie, SMcKenzi@aol.com:

I have posted a group of old photographs collected by my Dad, John Kitchen, when he was a student at the Farnam School in the 1930s. Included are pictures of friends, a flood that washed out the railroad track, the burned school in 1929 and a few later pictures that were taken when we visited his hometown in 1992.
