This photo is one that was among many in my Great Grandmother’s possessions. Since I don’t have a clue who she is, I thought I would make it available with the information that is written on the back.
“Sweet Dorothy J Gruel” (This may be Gruett, Cruett, Gruell, or some other variation in cursive writing.)
I recognize the building because it is still there and Bliss doesn’t have many buildings. I don’t know if it was all grades in one, or just a high school. Either way, I assume Ms. Dorothy knew my Great Grandmother, Lillian Coley, and sent the photo to her. There is a chance this photo was sent to Lillian’s mother, Martha Christiansen Coley, and could be a niece or something to her. I do not have her in my family file, cannot find her name anywhere, and hope this will be useful to someone. My Great Grandmother Lillian was born in 1898, so if this girl is roughly the same age, this photo would have been taken around 1912.
