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!

The photo and information are courtesy of “Memories of Things Past” on Ruby Lane.  Click here to check out this great shop!

What a lovely photo. Most of the kids genuinely look happy probably to have an opportunity to show off their favorite toy. A great way to validate what is important to children. Love the bob’d
hair! Betty

The cardboard dog is wonderful! Contemporary folk artists are bringing back these art boards usually with holiday motifs such as Santa Claus, Easter Rabbit, Halloween, etc. They are very similar in size and style to the interesting dog in this photo.
