Temple Avenue Grammar School Third Graders 1924


As Coweta County School children head back to classes this coming Monday they are not so different from the students of days gone by. These third grade youngsters in October 1924 pose at the old Temple Avenue Grammar School in Newnan, which stood on land now occupied by the city park. The teachers were Miss Flora Pickett and Miss Alice Byram. Miss Maggie Brown was principal then; and the Maggie Brown Kindergarten, where many of the county's new students will go Monday, is named after her.
