Leighton Collection

The following 5 photos were submitted by:

On the back of this photo is a note "Old Lutheran School; 20 and Mason, around 1900". My grandfather, Herman Pieper, is in the 7th row from the top, the fourth boy from the left. None of the other children are identified. This may have been a school associated with the Lutheran German church and I am working on trying to find records for the school. I would like to hear from anyone who knows more about the school and students.
