Take a close look at the photo. Observe the serious look on the children's faces. In the front row, near the sidewalk to the left, there is an unhappy looking little boy with two black eyes. I wonder how that happened. In the middle of the photo, in the first row of children standing, there is a child with a shaved head. Lice? Illness?
Times were tough. My grandmother use to say, "There was nothing good about the good old days." I think some of the children in this photo might agree...
