School and Class Photos

If you want a higher-resolution copy of a photo, contact me.
I probably have one I can send you.


Let's start with the elementary school class pictures. I'll try to put down who is who in the class pictures, while I can still remember some of them. The pictures were taken in 1947 and 1952, and I'm writing this in 2006. It's amazing I can remember anybody!

Postscript: I did remarkably well with them, if I say so myself. Then, in 2016, I joined a Facebook group entitled "Parkchester Teens of the '50s". I posted the pictures to the group and got 3-4 more identifications, and confirmations of others where I wasn't sure.
