In 1934, student Elsie Ovenell assembled the Lincoln Grade School’s annual scrapbook. The scrapbook includes photographs and newspaper clippings representing a year at Lincoln. From the looks of it, the school year was filled with orchestra concerts, puppet shows, diphtheria vaccines, basketball games, broken arms, faculty picnics, and, of course, a lot of learning.
The scrapbook currently resides in the library, but it has a home online as well: the entire scrapbook is available through our new Hub History project. Take a look for a trip back to 1930s Burlington.
