Photograph of the Boy's Kindergarten class at the Perkins School for the Blind, c. 1880
This picture shows 14 students from the boys' kindergarten class at the Perkins School for the Blind in Massachusetts. They're at a group of tables pushed into a U shape, working on a craft project. They are wearing either Victorian blazers and neckties or sailor suits, and they all have on lace-up boots. The classroom looks like a dining room, except there are paper chains and mobiles hanging from the light fixtures. There is no blackboard or teacher's desk. Instead, there are wooden and glass bookcases, framed pictures on the wall, and plants that they can touch.
