Were you ever in Room 302?

A couple shots of room 302. I remember having class in 303 with Ms. Howe and in room 304 with Miss Emch, but never in room 302. Click on any image to enlarge.
I wasn't kidding when I said the classrooms were as huge as warehouse docks!

The Gym at Memphis School

A shot of the old gym. This was sent to me by an alumnus showing the gym just before the tractor came calling. As you can see, someone was able to pull up and save the beautiful hard-wood flooring.

What you're seeing in this photo where the oak-flooring once was is...dirt! You can also make out the white basketball backboard on the left wall.

If you look closely, you will see an old clock hanging to the right of the doorway between the doorway and the interior window. The windows to the left are facing Memphis Ave. The gym was a fun place to ball, bake sales, voting and of course, school carnivals!
The old gym clock and its protective cage now hangs in our game room. Surprisingly, it's the best timekeeper we have at our home! If anyone has any photos of Memphis or the store that was called 'Greens' which was located on the corner of Memphis and W. 41st, please let me know.
