More Old Photos and Chuckles

I'm not able to adjust these the way I would like to until I get the laptop back, but I came across something amusing.

 

This is the high school graduation program of the Eighth District School in I think Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 

 

 

I guess back then people thought cellophane tape was great stuff, but they didn't know the damage it would do to ephemeral items like paper programs.  That's what left the stains.

 

Anyway, my Great-Great Aunt Gussie, Augusta Peterson, was a member of the Class of 1893.

 

 

I have pictures of some of the other Peterson siblings as children but haven't found one of a younger Gussie . . . yet. 

 

 

What brought a chuckle, however, was reading the scheduled events.

 

 

It's the Essay that caught my eye. 

 

 

I'll send Ms. Trout a Tweet.
