Schools of the Past: McDonough - The Union School, Part II


Returning again to the above, there are instances when new information/research surfaces and with this information, the photo of the interior of the Union School was extracted from the files of the historian. Donna J. Robb. She is most fortunate to have found this interior photo without students, as these photos are not common. You will note in the photo the prominent display the American flag (48 stars) which indicates since Arizona was the 48th state to be admitted in 1912 this photo was taken after that time frame. There are no less than nine flags shown in this photo and you will note the “bunting” draped around the top of the room. This may be an indication that the room was decorated for perhaps Memorial Day, Veterans Day or even July 4th celebrations. We will leave that to your discretion.
