Students in a classroom at Coralville Central School, 1950s

Dublin Core

Description

A photograph from the front of a classroom, as if from a teacher's perspective. Two rows of desks filled with students line either side of the photograph; boys and girls look down at the open books on their desks. Behind the students is the classroom door and a cork board covered in pictures and other papers.

In the early 1940s, it became apparent that the old Coralville school building was proving to be an insufficient space for the growing population of children that occurred after World War II. Construction began on Coralville Central School in 1948 (Walch, p. 77). By 1951, additions to the school, including a gymnasium, were approved to create even more space (Lovetinsky et al., p. 34).
