c. 1900 Grammar School Photograph of Students & Mr. Kane, Thomaston, Maine
Circa 1900 photograph of students and teacher Mr. Kane at a grammar school in the Rockland, Maine area. The photograph was taken by G. K. Merrill of Rockland. After researching the names of some of the students, I believe this school was located in Thomaston, Maine.
I can't quite make out some of the names, and some of the names seem run on or missing the surname, but I'll do my best, and you can check the image itself. In the meantime, I'll be researching some of the names individually for later posts.
There must have been a companion photograph of the male students.
Anne Jameson [Annie K. Jameson, later to be Class of 1905 VP at Thomaston HS]
Sampson twins [I think Edith and Ella]
Margaret Helens [F.Margaret Hellen, later to be Secretary of Class of 1905 at Thomaston HS]
Margaret Ryder [Margaret O'Brien Rider, later to be president of Class of 1905 at Thomaston HS]
