This school was built circa 1930 during the depression. The windows faced east to allow light in as it lacked electricity; the stifling Florida summer heat must have made it hard to concentrate. The kids could not raise their hand to ask to go to the restroom, as the teacher would say, "Restroom? What restroom?"
