"South Pittsburg's Handsome New School Building"

Beneath the picture it says, "This new school building, erected at a cost of about $85,000 by the city of South Pittsburg occupys a commanding site on Clute hill, and is one of the finest in the state. It was formally dedicated last Labor Day, every organization in the city taking part in the exercises. Wilson New is superintendent of the school, with an unusually able staff of teachers.
