This photo was posted by one of the groups I belong to on Facebook.
Often I think we forget about the important things in life and not all kids are cut out to be engineers or mathematicians or software designers.

”Traces of Texas reader Nathan Guerrero sent in this nifty photo of his grandfater, Arthur Guerrero in workshop class at San Antonio Vocational & Technical High School in 1945. Arthur is in the center of the photo. The high school would be later renamed in the early 70’s to Louis W. Fox Vocational and Technical School or as San Antonian’s know it, “Fox Tech”.”

I love old photos like that. It reminds me of the photos that the North Bennet Street School has on their site:
