A delightful antique school souvenir booklet from 1907! The cover is embossed and gilded and the edges are deckled It features an allegorical scene of education, an American flag, and an actual photograph of the teacher, which is glued in an oval frame of laurels.

Inside is a tissue overlay with more allegorical illustrations and a dedication from "YOUR TEACHER." The souvenir booklet is from the Thomas Public School in North Township, Marshall County, Indiana. There is just one teacher, the beautifully named Pearle Bondurant. This brave woman was in charge of 44 students, all listed in the booklet, ranging from grades one through eight!

The booklet also contains a flowery sentimental poem about the "Close of School," filled with nicely detailed drawings.

The back tissue overlay has more sweet illustrations and another poem, and the inside back cover is signed "Minnie Synder" in fountain pen. (Minnie was one of the 8th Grade pupils.)

The back cover shows a little one-room schoolhouse in an ornate frame, and the whole piece is tied with a faded pink silk cord.

This would be a lovely gift for a very special teacher or student, and also would look pretty leaning against a stack of books or on a shelf as part of your decor. The illustrations would be great to scan and use in projects.

Imagine the school days of the Edwardian era with this antique school souvenir booklet!
