Down Memory Lane — Irvin "Gus" Gustafson

Irvin “Gus” Gustafson submitted this photo of the Green Valley School from 1890. Pictured in the photo are: Frank Gustafson, 6, second row, second from right. Frank lived in Malden for most of his life; Roy Gustafson, 10, second row, second from left; Hulda Gustafson, 5, front row, first from left; Eunice Gustafson, 7, front row, third from left; and teacher, Mrs. W. Piper, second row, first from left. Frank said he and his sisters spoke no English when they entered school because their parents were from Sweden and only Swedish was spoken at home.
