Solano School Pupils in 1925 included Jack Sikes (third from the left), and Alta Eggert and Jean Sikes, who were the only two girls in the school.
Note: the book has Jack mislabeled as the tall boy.
Here is an excerpt from Jean Sikes' graduation speech:
"Most of the time Jack and I walked to school about one and a half miles from our home. We didn't have much of any supervision on the playground. When we went out for recess or lunch hour we were on our own. If we chose to go down and play in the slough, we were free to do so. This was especially fun when the teacher had here boyfriend come to visit during lunch hour. We would get an hour-and-a-half or two hours for lunch" (Courtesy of Pat Pipkin.)
