The theme this week shows students with books. Where's the best place to find that but at school? In my collection I find this postcard. This is the old Newburyport High School that sat at the corner of High and Green Streets. The church behind the school is Immaculate Conception and is still there. NHS moved up High Street to the new address in 1938 the old school was razed and replaced with a convent for the IC church.
The card was posted October 30, 1915 at 10:00 PM. Can you imagine postal workers working that late in a small city like Newburyport?
In the message area the sender is thanking the recipient for a previous card and asking what news he desries.
The new NHS shown below was built in 1938 and refurbished in 2002.
