A black and white photograph of young students in a classroom at the Oregon School for the Deaf on Turner Road. The school occupied the Turner Road location from 1895-1910. Several students sit at desks with books and slates. Four students practice speaking while standing at the front of the room with their teacher. They are holding their hands to their throats to feel the vibrations of their speech. A handwritten note on the back of the photograph reads: "OSSD oral primary class at Turner Rd - 1900-01" OSSD stands for Oregon State School for the Deaf, the name of the school from 1913-1989.
