A deep dive into our archives II

Another one of those folders that I mentioned in our last post held these four mystery cabinet cards without dates.

Riverton Public School, constructed 1892
1905 Sanborn map detail, Riverton Public School

I believe that the first three photos show students in front of the Riverton Public School that was at the corner of 4th and Howard Streets as shown in this detail of a 1905 Sanborn Insurance Map.

Click on an image to enlarge it. Then scroll down a bit and note the option to view the full-size image.

Riverton Public School, built 1910

This next undated photo probably was taken by the current brick school that was built in 1910. Other additions followed in 1935, 1955, and 1974.

None of the photos have any dates or names. If you have any ideas, please contact us. -JMc, Editor
