Subject: [Leica] Schoolhouse at Besancon, Indiana #6

These schoolhouses had one classroom that took up most of the building. Most 
of them also had two small rooms in the front extension of the building, on 
both sides of the door, that were for storage and for students to hang their 
coats in the winter. There was no restroom; they had outhouses. I've seen a 
few that had basements, with a second classroom down there, and one that had 
a second floor with a second classroom. Same basic design as the one in the 
photo, just taller with a second floor.

    Wow.  And you really mean ONE room.  Moody.
