Brook Knoll School at the OK Market

Pollyanna found some old yearbooks from Brook Knoll Elementary school, 1965-1967.
What a sweet cast of characters!
Everybody got fresh new paper clothes and went to play on the boarded up windows of the abandoned OK Market.

50¢ worth of innocence

Pollyanna was happy to find an illustrated 1924 copy of Raggedy Ann and Andy and the Camel with the Wrinkled Knees at St Vincent de Paul for 50¢.
Pasted on light poles along S 4th Avenue, especially concentrated around Safford School.
A celebration of innocence.

OK Market

Wouldn’t it be nice if, instead of a boarded up shell of a building, there was a bakery/greengrocer/cafe, with neighbors stopping in for a dozen eggs and a quart of milk and a chat?
