1946 Stonefield Parish School

1946 Ness's School by Jack Owens wmJack Owens shared this lovely clear picture this week. Taken in 1946 are the children of Stonefield Parish School, affectionately known by some people as “Ness’s School.”

Always wishing to add a little more to a picture somebody shared, I can tell you Jack that this was Class 1 in 1946 and their teacher was Miss Neilson.
