One thing I noticed is how few of these pictures have anything written on the back of them. How old were the children in them? What grade were they in? What school did they attend? Little details that were common knowledge to the people looking at those pictures at that time, but big missing details today.
This has made me be very conscientious about putting details on the back of my children's school pictures. It also gets me excited about putting the pieces of the school picture puzzle together for all of the others that I have.
