Hood School (Lawrence, MA)

The Gilbert E. Hood School opened its doors in 1905.  It was named for a superintendant of Schools.  It was located at 35 Park St.  This picture owned by Maria Smith shows what we believe is a 6th grade class in 1957.  The season is Christmastime and the teacher, if it is a 6th grade class, is a Miss Anna Sullivan.  Maria Smith’s husband, Joseph Smith, is in a plaid shirt in the front row.   To anyone who might remember the teacher or were perhaps in this class, we would love to hear from you.  The school closed in 1961 and was torn down a few years later.
