For Sale is a rare ALBUMEN antique photo of children in a classroom during the 1800s. T are about 25 kids in the class of varying ages. they are all sitting with their hands folded on the desk like good littel chidlren would. I think back then you would get your hand slapped with a ruler if you didn't obey the teacher!

The desks appear to have fold down benches attached to them as the front row are still folded up. the clothing on the kids are just great. As you can see t is a crack along the center of the albumen photo and some other thin crease marks going the opposite direction. However, it is still a great historic photo and you can always photo shop it or do a photo restoration to get a perfect clear copy if you need one. This photo is approx. 8" x 6".

Although this is not identified it came from an estate sale in CT along with a photo album from the turn of the century (which I will be listing shortly) and the album has photos of WW1 with families from Berlin CT.
