The past two weeks have been quite busy with back-to-school preparations. And while the current pandemic situation is far from perfect, the start of school is inevitable. After being remote for 500+ days, I forgot how much work went into preparing kids for school. That’s why last Friday’s Free Vintage Friday completely slipped past me unnoticed. It wasn’t until a few days ago, I realized its absence! But never fear — this week Free Vintage Fridays is back!
To commemorate back-to-school season, this week’s image is a class image from 1912 set in Victoria County, Nova Scotia, located just south of Prince Edward Island, the setting for my beloved Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery. In this photo, I particularly love how the entire class is gathered underneath a portrait of Queen Victoria with the date 1912 scrawled across the top of the chalkboard.
I plan on using it in my new Summer Twilight altered book journal to document our own back-to-school experience. But, I can easily see this used in an Anne of Green Gables journal or school-themed page!
