Century-old writings found in Oklahoma school on hidden chalkboards
Emerson High School in Oklahoma City is getting some renovations, and in the process of ripping down walls contractors discovered some very old schoolwork.
Chalkboards filled with lessons and drawings that date back to 1917 were found, and they had remained intact over all that time.
Some were dated November 30th of that year and others December 4th.
The writings included history lessons on the Pilgrims, music, and math.
Drawings were of a ship, children, and even a great big turkey.
Also uncovered were old newspaper clippings and report cards.
One of the advertisements announced the availability of women's shoes for as little as 2 dollars and 56 cents.
School officials are currently looking into ways to have the historic finds preserved.
