|Title||Children looking at flooded O'Brien School, 1934 |
|Caption||The town of O'Brien was located two and a half miles north of Kent in central King County. The O'Brien School stood on the northeast corner of 68th Avenue South (West Valley Highway) and South 212th Street. During the 1940s the school was used for grades one through four. The covered shed to the left was a dirt play area, the building on the far right a gymnasium. The flooded area was a grass playfield. The school was demolished in the late 1950s, and the site is now occupied by warehouses. |
