|Title||Columbia School students with sign promoting school bonds, Seattle, 1948 |
|Caption||The real-estate developers of Columbia City reserved land for a school one block west of Rainier Avenue. The wood frame school with a large bell tower opened in 1892 and served students of all grades. When Columbia City was annexed by neighboring Seattle in 1907, the city suddenly had two Columbia Schools. The name of the younger one, on Capitol Hill, was changed to Lowell. The Columbia City school kept its original name.|
In this 1948 photo, two Columbia School students hold a sign promoting the upcoming school bond vote.
