Craigflower School II

Scottish immigrants such as the MacKenzies (proprietors of Craigflower Farm) had great respect for education. The literacy rate in their native Scotland was very high compared to neighbouring England and teachers were respected members of the community. This goes a long way towards explaining the relatively genteel quality of the teacher's sitting room pictured below. Other rooms in the upstairs part of the school building were bedrooms for the teacher's family and for student boarders.

Beautiful processing on that top photo, B. Look almost like a painting on my laptop monitor.

You find so many picturesque sites.

Great shots. Must have been a real wide-angle to get all the detail in the interior.
Bravo to the keepers of this historic location.

I was thinking the same thing about the wide angle lens!
