A wonderful glimpse at school life in the 1950's. Girls wore poodle skirts and bobby socks and boys had rolled up jeans and greased back hair. They sat on chairs by Charles Eames and read their books under lighting by George Nelson. The buildings were mid century modern works of art by famous architects such as Richard J. Neutra, Victor A. Lundy, Hugh Stubbins, Paul Thiry, Mario J. Ciampi, The Architects Collaborative and more.
