Grant School, Colville (submitted by Cindi Bomersheim)
We are pretty sure that this is Grant School in Colville, also known as the "brick school," which used to be at the corner of Second and Maple streets. The only person identified so far is Anna Rukgaber Bomersheim, the girl with the cap in back row, 5th from right. We believe the photo dates to ca 1911, perhaps a year or two later. Would really appreciate any further identifications.

Mill Creek school 1922 (photo contributed & indentifications by Ron Bestrom)

Mill Creek school ca 1925 (photo contributed by Ron Bestrom)
Ron thinks the boy in the middle in the back that you can see only from the eyes upward is Carl Bestrom; the girl to his right "could" be Ida Hull; the tall boy in the back "could" be Vern Nielsen. Based on the looks of these students in the 1926 picture, Ron guesses 1925. The teacher is the same Marion Gray that is in the 1926 and 1929 pictures. He looks younger than in the 1926, but could be anytime between 1925 to 1930.
