This picture is of the students of 1898 in the Bradstreet school, better known as Skunk Hollow School south of Sutherland.
Most of these students laer attended the Sutherland School. Often a country School was
attended only during the winter months when the children could be excused from work
on the farm, as some of the students appear a bit older than the junior high students of today.
The Sherman Gilbert in the back row is the father of Larry Gilbert, who loaned this picture.
