ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

dsc_1152_localtone

Yesterday, I went up to my ole’ hometown of Hamburg, PA to walk around a bit and look for some photography things to shoot.  I remembered my ole’ Elementary School which still stands after all these years have passed.  Now, it’s the Borough Hall of Hamburg.

I walked up those steps, that I have done many times when I was just a young boy, and took a trip back in time.  There are no more classrooms here, anymore.  Just walls and office space that were never there before.  The grass area to the right was once part of the macadam play area where marbles, and hopscotch were once played.  The tree is much younger than the one there before.  It was much bigger back then.

I walked those steps and remembered having my class picture taken at that exact spot when I was in 3rd or 4th Grade.  It’s also where I broke my front tooth and had to go thru a nightmare at the Dentist’s Office to have it repaired.  The Ghosts of children, such as I was, are long gone.  Only those who remember.
