Learning to knit


Fourth and Fifth-grade students of Mrs. Ruth Moyer at Holladay school find that knitting not only occupies spare hand-twiddling periods but puts a little spending money into pockets and a rash of berets on their heads. Standing from left, Charles Patterson, Jerry Gibbs, and Silas Williams. Seated are Florence Lindley and Harriet Whitlow. Kids think it fun. Holladay school was located on NE 9th and Halsey, where the Lloyd Center now stands. The caption is taken from the Oregon Journal; the photo was taken on May 24, 1949.
