Crown Point Elementary School, San Diego, 1952

My father's third grade class at Crown Point Elementary School in San Diego, California, 1952 – Teacher:  Mrs. Chamness.

I count forty kids and one teacher!  Cute how a third of the boys are wearing their Cub Scout uniforms for their class photo.  My dad is the bottom left Scout.

That IS a lot of kids for one teacher! That was about the time we had regular air raid drills & had to crouch under our desks. At least we did on the east coast. Did they on the west coast? Certain sirens still give me the willies.

Thanks, Judi. My dad was surprised when I showed him how many kids there were in class. Both my parents had regular duck and cover drills with sirens and so did I given our close proximity to a nuclear power plant.
