Larry Marlin and Jean Shank, Phillipsburg, Missouri, 1939

scan0284That’s my aunt, Jean Shank, holding my brother, Larry Marlin, outside the front door of the Union School at Phillipsburg, Missouri.  Larry was about 2-1/2 years old in 1939 when this was taken, and Jean was about 11 or 12.  The Union School house was a one room school where one teacher taught eight grades of children.  It was located on the corner of the property owned by my grandfather and it was where my mother and her siblings went to school for the first eight years of their education.
