Kindergartens in St.Louis

This is a picture of Clark School in St.Louis. My mother started kindergarten there about 90 years ago. For her, kindergarten was more different than for Evelyn, for me, or than it will be for Miriam, because her family did not speak English at home. She had to learn English when she went to kindergarten. Clark school was almost new when my mother went there. Now it is almost 100 years old.

This is the front of Hamilton School where I went. I think the bay windows in front are the kindergarten's windows that I remember. The playgrounds were in back.

The next photo is Delmar-Harvard School where Elaine and Arny went to kindergarten, and where I went to school after second grade.

My mother and I both attended Hamilton School. I was in Kindergarten in about 1956 and had Miss Lang and Miss Tubasing. I remember the beautiful room at the front of the school
