Maude Elliott explains on the back of the photograph how the chuck wagon she was using as a school progressed into a shoe shop in Garden City. When the new district was opened, the wagon was hitched behind a pair of mules who drew it to the new school location. Maude Elliott was supposed to get a new school house, but unfortunately the new school building was still unfinished by the time she left.

Date: Between 1910 and 1920
