Bird House Contest, 1930s Anchor Grade School

Elementary school children with homemade birdfeeders, 1930s.

This wonderful photograph comes from the Museum’s William Brigham Collection. Brigham was the longtime superintendent of McLean County Schools, and this photo appears in his 1951 history of county schools.
Unfortunately, no one is identified here, though we do know Lucy Spires (not shown) was the school principal at the time.
