When Marksmanship Was Included as Part of Education

I recently found the following photo dated 1922 showing the Central High School girls rifle squad. I find it interesting that marksmanship was something taught in high school … and that there were competitions between schools. This is something I’m definitely going to want to dig into a little deeper.

The location is on the athletic field of Central — now Cardozo — looking east. The buildings in the background are the old Garfield Hospital.
