28). My Grandmother's Kindergarten Pupil -- Part 2    Regan, North Dakota (1921)

As I described in the previous photo, I met a delightful 87-year old woman in North Dakota named Hester Bailey who, amazingly enough, was my grandmother's kindergarten pupil in 1921.  My grandmother died decades ago when I was very young, so meeting Hester was a real thrill for me.  After looking through photos that my grandmother had shot in 1921, Hester recognized herself (circled) in this one, taken when she was six years old.  This was taken at the Canfield School, which burned down a few years later.
