Congratulations to the Class of 1902

High school graduation season is almost here, and the whole pomp and circumstance thing hasn’t changed much in the last hundred years. Take a look at this June 1902 commencement program honoring Manual Training High School’s latest graduates.  

Manual Training taught trades, but I don’t know exactly which ones because I can’t find anything about the school—except that at some point it was renamed John Jay High School and became a regular academic school on Seventh Avenue in Park Slope.

Lets hear it for the class of 1902.
