School Days


This is a picture of my mother and her classmates taken in 1927 in Robstown, TX. The two little girls in the matching striped sweaters are her twin cousins Eva and Iva Magee. My mother is sitting next to the twin holding the sign.


Here she is in 5th grade standing next to her teacher, also in Robstown.


This was taken in Falfurrias in 1932. My mother is in the 3rd row, 5th from the left. Notice the cute dog (class mascot?) in the front row.

Hi! I stumbled upon your blog, specifically the one with your
mother's elementary school photos. I was extremely excited
because I grew up in Robstown and I now am a historian
whose work is largely influenced by Robstown history. I am
currently at Brown University pursuing my Ph.D., but I work
very closely with the Robstown Area Historical Museum
(FB: https://www.facebook.com/RobstownAHM). Your pictures
are amazing and I was wondering if you'd be willing to share
them (a digital copy) with the Robstown Area Historical
Museum? Also, I looked through your entire blog looking for
reference to Robstown and found other great photos including
history of your maternal grandparents.
Thank you so much for posting!
