Throwback Thursday

Back to school!

Ah yes, the good ol' class photo! It's a time-honored tradition. There's something special about a photo capturing classmates in a moment in time. That's true no matter if it's Lexington Township in 1899 (like the students photographed here) or one taken in modern day DeSoto.

Remember, those back to school clothes you're choosing right now are the same duds that might be donned for that class photo!
