Hammond St. School

Mom & Dad both went to Hammond St. School on Westernport Hill. They walked home for lunch or to their Grandmothers'. Mom recalls getting spanked for picking pink roses off the hill by the school (the older girls talked her into it!) Dad was spanked by Principal Nellie Dowling for sliding down the banister. Mrs. Dowling game him a nickel after the spanking to buy a Popsicle at the corner grocery. Mom is pictured here in 2nd grade between friends Jean Franklin & Dorothy Howard. 1932
