Coddington School about 1906-1909
Pat Wary sent this photograph. Her grand aunt Alice Genevieve Connolly is standing at the left behind the first seated girl. Pat says Alice, "graduated from there [Coddington School] in 1915.  By looking at them, I would say they were all about 6-8 years old, which would put this picture about 1906-1909, certainly before 1910, but not before 1906.  Alice was born in October of 1899, so her first grade class probably would have been in 1906."
