Children and teacher, possibly Miss Glasgow, pose in front of the Slaughter Ranch School. Blonde girl (far right, next to the teacher) is May's sister, Ruth Watkins. Her older sister, Gladys, is directly behind her. Pancho Anderson, another Slaughter Kid, is the tall boy standing in the middle of the back row. Ca. 1902.
