An Old School Picture
I came across a newspaper photo of a local grammar school group identified as "1927". I would say this was maybe their 5th grade photo. What I really noticed was how skinny both the boys & girls were back then. There was one somewhat chubby girl in the front row (there were about 30 kids total), but otherwise not another even slightly "hefty".
Back in my neighborhood in the 40ties, I can only remember one boy that would be considered overweight even today, & we had lots of kids.
How things have changed.
