Photo Flashback: Sinking to a New Low Edition
It's only recently that D.C. schools have had problems with their physical plants, right? Not exactly, if this photo that ran in the Star on Jan. 22, 1950, is any indication:
It accompanied a story on the woeful amenities in the District's Hine Junior High School. Here's the original caption: The antique lavatory being used by (left to right) Connie Gonzaga, 726 I Street S.E.; Florence Soper, 726 Eleventh street S.E.; and Ann Wrightson, 509 B street S.E., is in the school basement. This is the only rest room for 335 girl students.
Yes, newspapers back then used to print the home addresses of junior high school students they wrote about.
