These last few days, I’ve been putting up a new bookcase and organizing and re-organizing a whole lot of stuff. Amongst the hidden treasures I found was this 1926 Sears and Roebuck specialty catalog – for schoolhouses! I’d purchased it several years ago from eBay and then forgot about it.
My 57-year-old husband browsed through the yellowed pages and said, “I remember those desks.” I knew he was older than me, but I didn’t realize he was that much older! However he went to school in a small town in West Virginia. Apparently, they didn’t replaces functional items like schoolhouses and schoolhouse equipment as fast as we did here in Hampton Roads.
Enjoy the photos. And if you’re here to learn more about Sears Homes, click here.
