Throwback Thursday

With a new academic year that started on Tuesday, this week’s Throwback Thursday Pic is of a typing class held at J. C. Patterson Collegiate High School. The picture was taken around 1898 showing students typing on their Underwood Typewriters. Typing was one of the few skills women possessed to help obtain employment outside the home. Did you notice the young man taking the class with all the women?
