But, on the downside. Didn't the teacher have to arrive early and make the fire? Weren't the wages about $12.00 a month? Didn't the teacher have to care for all of the schools' maintenance? Didn't the teacher have to haul in the water? And, on and on.
Hum. maybe the old days weren't that glorious after all. But, I do love to stop and take a photo each time I see one of these one room wonders and dream of what life was like for the teacher and student's inside.
