1928: JUNIOR 4 - TODAY'S GRACE DUNN

This graphic is an extract from the 1928 issue of "THE ARGUS," the school yearbook. I felt that the heritage of that legendary school deserved a bit of enhancement and have added a bit of color to give you just the essence of the school as it looked 82 years ago. Legends never die. Today, Grace Dunn's Junior 4 carries on the tradition. I felt that this graphic was worthy of conversion to a hand-colored version, and took the time to change the drab gray scale to red bricks on the school and a colorful dress on Ms. Dunn. Enjoy!
BloggerFrom Ralph Lucarella:

Hi Tom: I attended Jr. 4 shortly after it was built and it was the best 3 years of school that I spent. Miss Dunn, Miss Lawrence and all my other teachers were the greatest and along with the other facilites, it made school seem more bearable. I played on the baseball team with Mr. Wood as coach and took advantage of the swimming pool often. It was quite a walk from Villa Park but we always endured.

Best Regards,

Ralph
