"They don't make them like they use to" is a familiar saying now and our postcard of the day illustrates what they are talking about. Most of the schools today are one or two stories covered in red brick and look more like a big ranch style house than schools. The folks in Helena Montana knew how to build a school that could hold up under all kinds of weather, keep the kids safe and look beautiful. Check out the detail around the entrance and windows and the steep roof to keep that winter snow off the roof top. This circa 1909 school was a work of art and can be seen in my Montana listings along with 10,000 more postcards on my website at Moody's Postcards.
