Scope and content

A black and white photograph of a sewing class at the Oregon School for the Deaf on Turner Road. About a dozen students sit in chairs with hand sewing, turned to face the camera. One woman sits at a treadle sewing machine and another stands behind the seated girls. A handwritten note on the back of the photograph reads: "1900-1901 OSSD sewing class Mrs. Wentz, Teacher Turner Rd". Another note reads: "printed from original engraving - 1901". OSSD stands for Oregon State School for the Deaf, the name of the school from 1913-1989.
