Nashville Public School
1913 - 1914

      The photographs and other items contained in this document were scanned from a 1914 album that appears to have been prepared by (or for) Professor C. Cooper Groves, Assistant Principal & Supervisor of Music for the Nashville (Illinois) Public School. We purchased this album on eBay in June 2015 from a seller who found it at an estate sale. Titles and descriptions for the images were taken from notations in the album. We personally identified some of the individuals and added some pupils' names from school articles in the Nashville Journal.
