UNION GRADE SCHOOL
BLACK SCHOOL
Sixth Grade Class of Black School

This was the whole class at the time the pic was taken. Photo taken during winter of 1952 if my memory is correct. This is the Sixth Grade Class of Black School.  The School was located on the corner of 3 mile Rd. and Hammond.  Building is still there and red, I think.  Was a typical one room school.  Mrs. Rhoa L. Wurtele was our teacher that year, (dont have a photo with her).

Some of this class went to Central, others may have moved away. Note the high buckle black rubber boots, most of us walked to school then. I
will include here some location history of where us kids lived in relation to the school.

Left to Right by number:
Francis Hughes #1, Jerry Lewis #2, Judy Johnson #3, Brian Luhrs #4,
Larry? Bradley #5, Mike Loomis #6.

Later, possibly the following year, Mike Tousley was also a classmate here.

Francis lived up the dirt road end of 4 mile Rd.
Jerry lived right on 3 mile Rd. 1/2 mile from school.(Toward Bay)
Judy lived right on 3 mile Rd. a mile from school. (Toward Bay)
I, Brian lived right on 3mile Rd. (Across from the Wagner Farm)
Dont know where Larry or Mike lived. (Within walking distance, hence the boots)
Mike will include here some location history of where us kids lived in relation to the school. had an older sister in this same school, named Kay, and two younger
twin brothers, Matt and Bill.

Respectfully Submitted, Brian Luhrs
This photograph from the 1930s was taken from the corner of Pine and 8th streets. The building now serves Central Elementary School.
