Sioux Center School Photos
Herman J. Wissink, marked as "Uncle Harm".
I think it is a school picture of about 1898-1900, my dad was born January
17, 1890 and he looks about 8 to 10 years old.

Newsprint quality was very poor to reproduce well.
This group of 22 students were attending a rural School located on mile north and one mile east of Kroon's Corner (Hwy 75 & 7th St) Sioux Center 60 years ago (in 1900) when this picture, owned by Mrs. Martin Wierda of Sioux Center was taken. Teacher was Annabelle Mouw.

Sixth grade students of the Sioux Center School. Only a few people are identified as follows: short boy extreme far left is Lawrence Mol. The girl behind the club leader's right shoulder is Hendrena VanBeek (Mrs. John Schelling.) Does anyone know the possible meaning of the double circles on the girl's dress in the middle?
