Description
Photo may be attributed to Arthur A. Bently.
This is the way a typical Los Angeles schoolroom looked in the "gay nineties," when the little girls wore ruffles and pigtails and the boys sported flowered suspenders like their dads. Third grade pupils of the Gates Street School in 1899, shown here, are performing ambidextrous drawing to develop equal use of both arms.
