Shoe Shop School scene, Finney County, Kansas

Maude Elliott explains on the back of the photograph how the chuck wagon she was using as a school progressed into a shoe shop in Garden City. When the new district was opened, the wagon was hitched behind a pair of mules who drew it to the new school location. Maude Elliott was supposed to get a new school house, but unfortunately the new school building was still unfinished by the time she left.


Shoe Shop School, Finney County, Kansas

This photograph shows the Shoe Shop School with paper covering the sides, wheels, and all. The paper proved to be poor insulation and did not keep the wind or the children from slipping under the school room floor. The ten children pictured were only half of Maude Elliott's pupils. She taught thirty-two classes a day, all eight grades.


School in a chuck wagon, Finney County, Kansas

This photograph shows Maude Elliott's first school building; it was used as a chuck wagon where two or three women cooked for a crew of men. The tent was their "living room" which could be as easily moved from place to place as the chuck wagon. A pair of mules was all that was needed to move Maude Elliott's school building around.
