Historic Photo of the Wilson Normal School

I recently found this image of teachers and students at the old Wilson Normal School studying Sycamore seed balls and buds. The image wasn’t dated, but it is probably from the early to mid-1920s. The location of the scene is along Eleventh Street between Harvard and Girard streets looking toward the northwest.

Residents know the school better today as the home of the Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School. It is located at 1100 Harvard Street, NW.
