The Silver Crest School, located on Sydney Road in the Town of Pine Valley served as the primary educational facility for dozens of families.
It was back around 1915 when this picture was taken. Students, their teacher and parents were discussing the fact that Ford Moter Company had raised its basic wage rate from $2.40 for nine-hour day all the way up to $5 for an eight-hour-day. The Panama Canal was a year old. A fellow by the name of Alexander Graham Bell managed to use his funny telephone all the way across the nation. And everbody was saying that war was on the horizon; a German submarine had sunk the Lusitania.
The picture below was loaned to the Press by Ethel Pflughoeft of rural Neillsville.
