Accident School 1920

Accident, Maryland: Accident school. Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


The school shows the passage of time. It appears to need paint, but money was very hard to come by. In 1920 one hundred pounds of lead and five gallons of oil were borrowed from H.J. Speicher to paint the school during the summer. The work was approved by Henry Speicher who hired P.J. Kahl and his painters to do the work. The workers can be seen on the job.


Family of Mary Miller Strauss
