Garfield Annex

Walking around the former Admiral King High School with my camera on Sunday reminded me that I was photographing soon-to-be-demolished schools way before I started this nostalgia blog.

Here's a few that I shot with a regular 35mm camera (remember those things?) of Garfield Elementary back in March 2003 According to the book The History of Lorain City Schools recently published by Titan Enterprise, the building shown below is actually the Garfield Annex; it opened in 1910.

I like that fallout shelter sign. I wonder if it was salvaged?

Here's another view shot the same day.


And here's a vintage photo showing the annex along with the original building; it appeared in the aforementioned The History of Lorain City Schools.

It's a nice little book with capsule histories of Lorain school buildings and notable graduates. Here's the information about how to order it.

I wonder how many of them were of Wurmser fame?
