(* Fannin CC's notations. I belive this photo to be the graduating class, because the following photograph is the same teacher in the same suit and the location is the same from the trees
behind them. The following photo is of the rest of the school or the whole school congregation.

In the 1910-1911 Fannin County Directory
Booker T. Washington School (C - for colored) was addressed at
800 E. 7th , J. H. Stewart Principal.

In the Sanborn Fire Maps this information is shown:
In Jan. 1917 the "Negro" Public school was located at that address , right
next to the Katy Railroad Tracks & another shown on S. 2nd & S. Main.
No names on the schools.

In the 1932 Sanborn Fire Insurance maps
Booker T. Washington School is shown as being next to the county home.
A closeup of the square shows it was built in 1928 and included a large wooden Gym
on the back of the lot.
The road is East 4th Street, four blocks south and one to the East.
The Katy Tracks had been removed by that time.
I cannot find another African-American School listed on the map. If you
know the location and time period, please email  me.
