Description
Image shows group of four boys who won prizes in the first annual birdhouse competition, the cumulation of a manual training department assignment at Malaga Cove School.

Jack Wallace (3rd prize); 2. Richard Yarnell (shared 2nd prize); 3. Spencer Moeller (shared 2nd prize); and 4. Melroy Hodge (1st prize.) Prizes, consisting of three books on birds, were presented to the boys by Frank A. Vanderlip. The community birdhouse, held and designed by Richard Yarnell and Spencer Moeller, was modeled after one wing of Malaga Cove School.
