Here in Canada the kids have been back in school for a full week now and everyone’s routines are set, so I figured it’s a perfect time to share my Vintage Photo Tuesday“- Back to School Post.

One of the fun things about going back to school is meeting up with old friends again and hanging out between classes. Howard University-1946.

Back to school, means back to classes like in this 1935 cooking class photo (I would totally be the girl with the lack of excitement on her face).

And there you have this week’s Vintage Photo Tuesday. I hope you enjoyed spending a few moments going Back to School with me.

Question Time: Do you have fond memories of heading back to class or not so great memories (share in the comments below)? I personally loved the first day back at school, it was everything after I was not fond of. Ha Ha!

  1. Wow, those lunchboxes are WAY TOO TINY to fill their bellies. I love the snazzy Howard outfits. you are right about that. And the girls in cooking class with all those scarves and blousy tops, it seems like those are a “recipe” for danger near an open flame. My only lunchbox memory is not being able to decide between two at the store, so I wound up getting the orange Disney school bus shaped one with a Donnie & Marie thermos inside LOL.

    • Your lunchbox sounds pretty darn awesome! As for the ladies in the cooking class, I have to agree that someone must of caught on fire at least once a day. I know with the way I cook that would be me for sure! lol

  2. Oh those little lunchboxes and bags!! So cute.

    I can tell you that the first day of school was super exciting when I was a kid, and full of dread as a teacher. Next up I will get to experience it as a parent. I’m guessing it will be super exciting again 😛

    • I look forward to hearing how you make out on the parent side. I’m sure exciting and a bit of sadness as they head off on their own (my mom cried like a baby on our first day at school lol)

  3. I love the girls cooking class, I would love to be part of that! Also, the guys from 1946 in their boaters are so cool. Could you imagine boys turning up to class looking like that today? xx
