Lincoln Grade School, circa 1906
This photo is a large format class photo of one class in Lincoln grade school in 1906. The class room was standard for Boise circa 1906, Notice the picture of Jesus on the back wall. This was a reminder to the teacher to be ever upstanding in the eyes of the student. Traversing about the room the pictures were a boy tending sheep, Gen. Jackson on horseback. Unseen the pictures would be of Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, a girl with cows and a dog. This lay out was still standard when I started class at Lowell in 1944. The student seen sitting under the words "rulers of state" is my grand mother, 9 year old Dollie Leppert Venable. Directly behind is 6 year old sister Alice Leppert Smitchger.
