#13928 An Apple a Day

This is all that is left of Mrs Cuff's elementary school classroom, now all covered in dust with rain splatters where the weather flew in the broken third floor windows. She must have been a vibrant and engaging teacher, judging from the still colorful graphics on the blackboard and all the stenciling around it. That positive force of personality is now gone away and replaced by peeling paint, thick dust, and the Big Empty, but these clues of the past remain.<br />

This classroom was in a three story building originally built as a high school in 1917, and it's last years in the 1980's were as an elementary. Today it remains semi-abandoned and partially repurposed in non-school functions by private individuals, and most sections such of this classroom remain out of use. Some areas are very dilapidated, far more than shown here. The school is in a small and slowing fading coal town in the anthracite region of Pennsylvania.
