Photos of Monteagle School Children Taken
By The WPA School Lunch Program 1935
Submitted by Brandi
My great-grandfather, Frank Gracey Jarrell, was a clerk for the WPA,
and saved a great deal of WPA photos in a scrapbook I now have. These
are apparently from that, taken in 1935 of schoolchildren (the WPA had
a hot lunch program for rural schools at the time). I thought you might
like to put them on your Grundy Co. genealogy site. If anyone can
identify any of the children, I'd be ecstatic to add the information.

Back To The Grundy
The back of the photograph with the two kids in the cart being pulled
by...it's actually a goat, its head is just turned, says on the back:
"Bessi Lu Long 2 yr old and Dillard King 2 the little boy who was sick."
The other picture with a border, of the kids by the car, says: "Ready
to go home."
None of the others have any writing other than what's on the front.
