Back to school

To the despair of children everywhere (and likely to the joy of their parents), it is that time of year when the school year starts anew.
Here are Elspeth Hardy’s first graders at the Center Primary school on Green Street, now called the Faunce School.  Mrs. Hardy taught generations of Kingston children in a career that spanned several schools and more than fifty years.

The text on the chalkboard tells us that “the body is the temple of the soul,” a lesson for all time perhaps.
