I attended Evans in the 1970's (when I think it was about 80 years old) and even then the school was rich with the spirits of all of the children that had been through.

For some reason I find this picture haunting. Nothing sadder than the passing of time I guess.

I remember a lot of them as grown ups and the young girl B Nichols was my stepmotheromo28
