Essex School Journal (Lawrence, MA)

essexjournal1The Essex School Journal was published from 1895-97. It was published by the “Scholars of Essex Grammar School” with a subscription cost of 50c per year or 5c per issue. It was a monthly and billed itself as the only grammar school publication in the state of Massachusetts and later “the only grammar school paper on earth”. The third issue had the only image of the school building. The contents included articles, drawings, photographs, jokes, school news, local events, poems, and lots of advertisements. It is a remarkable publication and would have cost a lot to print.
