Graduation Day

Continuing with our trip in Bradford, we were directed to stop and photograph the old Bradford high school. Built in the early 1890's this massive structure represented a substantial commitment from the towns people for their children's education. Unlike many high schools that now sit empty and forlorn the old Bradford school still serves a purpose today, albeit a somber one. It's now a funeral home.

It's odd to think of rooms that were filled with laughing, boisterous children now filled with quiet reflective adults. Or perhaps not, For it would be a bit of irony to end ones journey in the same building where we started it. To face that ultimate graduation and move on to a higher level of learning and understanding. Food for thought.
