Ever since mothers owned cameras and children stood at bus stops or waved good-bye as they headed off to school....
school started with a snapshot.
Happy first day of school, parents and students!
I'd love to have a wall filled with first day of school photos in our upcoming "Growing Up in Edina: A Show and Tell Exhibit." Nothing else quite illustrates the universal experience of going to school. Whether you wore short pants and a dress coat or a t-shirt and jeans, you faced the day with a mixture of excitement and anxiety. These photos are all from the 1930s, because this is what we have scanned. But we do have some (and want more) photos from other decades, including any snapped this week.
Send in your first day photos and I'll run them next Friday. For more information, contact me.
