[Photograph]: Students of Piney Pond School, La Crosse, Virginia 1914

Sold

Unbound. Gelatin silver photograph on thick card mount. Labeled on verso: "La Crosse, Va. / Piney Pond School / April 3, 1914." Approximately 9½" x 5½". Mount has been trimmed down, slightly irregularly, to the edges of the image, crack on verso on the card which has only a modest effect on the image, and a few very small spots, near very good. The image shows about 50 African-Americans in front of a rustic schoolhouse, about two-thirds of them students with the rest either faculty or parents. One woman holds a baby. La Crosse, which was called Piney Pond until around 1890, is right next to South Hill in southeastern Virginia.
