History Mystery

Columbia Gorge News readers Cheryl Bailey Ortega and Jayne Guidinger recognized last week’s history photograph as one of the classrooms at Colonel Wright Elementary school in The Dalles. Ortega said the classrooms on the south and east end of both floors of the school had the built-in closets, and some of them still do. She was not sure of the year, but said it was definitely taken prior to 1950, as she attended from 1954/55 to 1960/61. Guidinger said it appeared to be one of the third grade classrooms at the school.
