Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

My son asked for a favor, providing me with an opportunity to meet this week’s photo challenge theme of “Room“.  Knowing his sister and I like to take day trips and explore, he asked us to visit the Log Schoolhouse, a one-room schoolhouse, in Colchester, Vermont.  I wish I could have gotten some better angles, but I tried to avoid some of the modern things, such as a bright red fire extinguisher, a monitor that had been placed in the front panel of the teacher’s desk, and a brochure rack for tourists.  My favorite image is the one of the book strap with books.

  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these old One Room School photos! I Googled Book Strap and found that pic first then found your blog with the rest of these wonderful pictures – love the old desks with their slates, wood stove and the Lard Lunch pail. I have an old school desk that I am refinishing (metal is rusted) it is not near as fancy as these but you gave me great ideas for a little vignette for that display area – thanks for these inspirational photos!
