This photo shows a Whitewater High School assembly from 1909. It is somewhat rare to have such quality interior photos that also show the students, since most class photos were taken outside and oftentimes only the exterior of school buildings were photographed. Built in the early 1880s, it served as the high school until it burned in 1927 and was replaced with City High. It was affectionately known as “Big Brick.”
