The Internet is a rabbit hole, isn't it?
I won't get long-winded here, but last night a search for outdoor movie screenings in my area turned into an in-depth mining expedition for photos of my hometown, Washington, Pennsylvania. I looked for the Route 19 Drive-In (closed, alas, in 1986), the Gee Bee department store across the highway (also closed), the Cinema 19 which was next to Gee Bee (closed - so many things I remember are closed! That's what happens when you stay away for 35 years).
And then I found these clippings at the Bealsville Cemetery blog.
These are the old elementary schools, numbered by "Ward", of Washington. Evidently, they were already getting old way back in 1954.
I have seen some of these school buildings in my lifetime. I have even been inside a couple.
Tell me, what do they look like to you?
Would you have wanted to step foot in any of these buildings as a child?
Would you want to step foot in any of these buildings NOW?
(I am not sure if any of these Ward buildings are still standing, but Washington is using a new facility for education. Lucky kids!)
