The children at Whittier Primary School, Hampton Virginia are being taught about Thanksgiving.

This is about 1899 and there is a log cabin on the table as part of the lesson.

1899 photo of schoolchildren being taught about Thanksgiving. Nothing like a photographer to make children look attentive! Love the blackboard (and the beautiful cursive).
