I'm really proud of this piece of Americana, a memorable step in the old one room school houses.
It's an old blackboard or slate that students would use at their seats. The student blackboard appears pretty old to me, perhaps around 1900. It has very old-fashioned connectors holding it together, it looks almost pre-industrial.
Anybody else out there collecting old educational technology? Any ideas on how to categorize such a thing? I put it under games and paper as the best fits. But, neither category does fit. Thoughts?
