1906 Spring Creek School

Here is another photo from my collection... a 1906 photo of children attending the Spring Creek community one room school house (NE Neshoba County area).

My grandfather, Reginald Nash Germany (1900-1904) told me he is standing next to the rectangular scratch... I marked on back that he is standing 3rd from right in the second row. Based on his apparent age I estimate this as taken in 1906.

However looking at this today when I scanned it, I think that based on other photos I have of him he could also be the older boy on the other side of the rectangular scratch... or this might be his older 1st cousin Rupert Cook who was born around 1895/1896. Therefore I leave open the possibility the photo could date from 1912 or so (to help others in possibly identifying their grandparents or g. grandparents pictured here.)

Note the smiles and and withheld laughter on some of the kid's faces... and the girl squeezing her friends chin... no rabbit ears in this photo but kids are always kids.

The thought occurred to me to check the 1910 census for school age children in the Spring Creek/Bond community and list them as possibly the kids in the photo...but that's another project.
