2 Responses to PPLD Historic Image of the Day, 4/2/12: “Washington School”

  1. As a professional photographer in the school photography business, I love these old historical images! Thanks for sharing and keep up the awesome work! I bet that old time photographer would be excited to know that over 100 years after he took that image, it would be available for the world to see!

  2. Michael says:

    Is this the original building of the Washington Elementary School at Pikes Peak and 8th Aves … the one that D-11 closed a few years ago and reopened as Buena Vista Montessori School?
