Sepia Saturday; School photography;

Some where in this picture is my father. I do not know when this picture was taken. My guess is
1910 or a couple of years later. There are 27 boys and 23 girls. This is a small village school. I guess some are siblings. In my father's family were 4 children 2 boys and two girls. At this time families were still big, generally more then 4 children. Perhaps in this photo is his brother or sisters. His older sister Rosa was born 1898, my father 1903, his younger brother Franz Josef Erwin 1905 and his youngest sister 1908.

This is my school class of 1951. I am the second from left wearing a white blouse. We are 12 years old. The girls had to wear aprons.This is also a village school. There was discipline at school.
Mr. Caderas was a good and kind teacher.

Got my son an iPhone for his birthday the other week and recently got my daughter an iPod for hers.
I was dead chuffed when the family clubbed together and bought me an iPad for Father's day.
Got my wife an iRon for her birthday. It was around then the fight started...
