Photo of a school class | “Remember your loving teacher” | 1926-07-02
The school bell rings loudly as we celebrate your excellent grades from the lessons of life with this intriguing 1926 photo of a large class of students and their “loving teacher” - a fact that is solidified with the hand-written label on the back.
After a close inspection, you will reach the same conclusions that got to:
1) The girl in the white shirt was the boss over there, and there is a high chance more than two boys got slapped by her
2) The young gentleman with the smug look on his face, in the lower right part of the photo, was a heartbreaker.
The photo is firmly glued to a thick, wooden passepartout, which has managed to preserve it with excellence through the years, so that the portrait could reach us today, eventually becoming a gift for storytellers (yes, we are talking about those of you who love sipping on coffee at the airports, watching passersby and creating scenarios about their lives), or for those who enjoy a good vintage photograph that says a thousand words, without speaking.
Warning: in case you recognize yourself in this photo, we ask that you either cry nostalgically, or go and sign yourself up for the Guiness Book of World Records as the oldest human in the country.
