School is back in session for children around the country!  This darling image dating from 1928, reminds us that there is fun involved in the learning too!

The photo hails from the well-known Frances Thompson Studio in San Francisco, CA and dates from 1928.  The children are holding some incredible toys – from a number of dolls that resemble Effanbee’s Bubbles, to lithographed books, to a cardboard dog! 

Take a look at the images in the gallery for more detailed shots!
