MISS TOOTS SECOND GRADE CLASS, MT WASHINGTON, KCMO 1950
MT WASHINGTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WAS BUILT IN 1903; IT WAS BRIGHT RED BRICK WITH GYMNASIUM, THREE INSIDE PLAYROOMS, A CAFETERIA, AN AUDITORIUM WITH A STAGE, A CLASSROOM TERM AS THE "OPEN AIR CLASSROOM" FOR ANYONE WITH PHYSICAL AILMENTS BORDERING ON TB. IT WAS A TERRIFIC SCHOOL AT THE TIME. IN EACH CLASSROOM, A PORTRAIT OF GEORGE WASHINGTON WAS ABOVE THE BLACKBOARDS. VARIOUS PORTRAITS OF LINCOLN WERE THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL. UNUSUAL FOR THAT ERA WAS A FULLY STAFFED LIBRARY WITH A WIDE SELECTION OF BOOKS. IN ADDITION TO THESE FACILITIES, MT WASHINGTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HAD A MUSIC ROOM AND AN ART ROOM. PLAYGROUNDS WERE SPACIOUS AND FENCED WITH NUMEROUS TYPES OF RECREATION ITEMS AND AREAS EXCLUDING SWINGS. THE SCHOOL WAS VERY PROGRESSIVE FOR THE ERA. THERE WERE NO COMPUTERS, BUT FILMS WERE USED EXTENSIVELY. THE SHADES WERE DEEP GREEN AND CREATED A PICTURE SHOW MOOD AMONG THE STUDENTS. DISCIPLINE CONSISTED OF SITTING IN THE PRINCIPALS OFFICE FOR A LENGTHY PERIOD FOLLOWED BY STERN WARNINGS. THERE WAS NO CORPORAL PUNISHMENT IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. IN THE 1940S AND 1950S, STUDENTS HAD TO LIVE AT LEAST THREE MILES FROM SCHOOL IN ORDER QUALFY FOR SCHOOL BUS TRANSPORTATION.
I've long lamented the lack of truly dangerous playground equipment on modern playgrounds -- it seems that children aren't _allowed_ to get bumps and bruises anymore. Therefore, I was thrilled to run across this playground tonight, which not only has a nicely dangerous junglegym, but it's actually _cooler_ equipment than what I remember having!
Really simple -- you grab the pole, step onto the little platform, and it spins. Of course, you instinctually hunker down and hug into the pole so you don't go flying off, which increases how fast you're spinning around and around.
_SO_ much fun!
Dizzy, cracking up and trying desperately to stand up without staggering all over the playground.
(All of these photos were taken by Prairie. Kinda hard for me to handle the camera when I'm horsing around like this.)
