This is identified as the old Whittier School in Princeton, which was my grandmother Anna Long's school. She was born in 1879, so I've guessed the 1890 photo date based on her apparent age in the photo.

Many thanks to for sending me a copy of this photo with many of the names assigned. Blanche (Byers) Stark, who was the grandmother of Sandra's husband, had written the names of many of the students on a copy of the photo, and that is the source of this info.

If you move your cursor over the faces of the people, mostly those in the back and the second rows -- the names of those identified by Blanche Stark -- will be displayed.

To aid word search, the names are: Viola Annis; Sherman Bloomfield; Alice Bonak(?) (Ludden); Blanche Byers (Stark); Clair Caley; Stella Rines Campbell; Luella Cilley (Sanford); Clifton Cravens; Jennie Cravens; Guy Ewing (teacher); Frank Goulding; Minnie Heath; Roy Jesmer; Frank Libby (janitor); Anna Long (Carlson); George Orr; Sarah J. Orr (English); Abbie Owens; Lulu Sadley (Owens); Miss Scoville; Bessie Shaw; Rose Tibbets Patterson; Della Ross (Allen); Katie Sargent; Lana(?) Snow (teacher); Emma Steadman (Rice); Charles Tibbets; Ethel Tibbets (Hess); Verna Townsend; Daisy Veal (Farrington); Charles Whitney; Maude Whitney (Burrell).


Can you provide names, corrections or details?
