I remember the Moses School which I passed many times on my trips to Tony Amato's barbershop on Park Avenue. Here is a delightful news photo of the children returning to class after a long summer vacation. Short pants were the order of the day for boys, or perhaps those corduroy knickers that "swich-swish" with every step we took....and let's not forget those ultra ugly knee high stockings we wore when we were decked out in knickers! The graphic below is an engraving of the original school as it looked back in the 19th century. Note that the children are entering a wooden clapboard building, while the architectural drawing below describes it as red brick. Perhaps a change was made between the time the engraving was published and the school was built.
