in Berlin, NY
in the early 1900s
These Berlin school photographs were kindly contributed by Carrie Rutherford
of Madrid, Saint Lawrence County, NY. Carrie writes of the first photo, "Someone had already labeled the REYNOLDS children, so there are Clarence REYNOLDS, Addie REYNOLDS, and Carrie REYNOLDS in this photo." Of the second photo, she writes, "This is a Berlin school picture with no one identified. I do believe, however, that the boy in the back row, second to the left of the middle porch post, is young Eleazer REYNOLDS."
UPDATE: Sharon Klein, Town Historian of Berlin, has provided a list of names of the students in the second photo (see below).
