Abbie - The little school was just about the size of this room. And it had the porches, Louise, it had a porch all the way around and it seems to me like the whole thing was tin, made out of this old corrugated tin. They might have had tin in order to, on account of those prairie fires they used to have, 'cause I know the old hotel and the store and that school house too and I well remember the hotel because when it did rain or anything like that couldn't sleep at night or anything when it battered down.
Louise: What year was this?
Abbie - 1925. The inside of that building had about four rows of benches, old handmade benches, no backs, no place to put their books. They put their books underneath the desk. Boy each one took care of their books I'll tell you that. I had to get me my own, uh, I got me a chair. There was no teacher's chair there was a desk. And that desk was just a little table with a drawer or two in it. But that was nothing unusual for the times, at that time some of the schools were like that.
