Description Burlingame Kindergarten Class at McKinley School, September 1949. Black and white negative shows a kindergarten class at McKinley School in Burlingame, California. The group portrait shows fourteen elementary school students in a classroom with many of the children wearing checkered aprons. Some of the students stand in front of easels holding paintbrushes, two are sitting in small chairs, two are sitting cross-legged on the floor, and the rest are standing around a sandbox table. A board with pictures of children is visible behind the sandbox. There is a piano with three songbooks in the corner of the room at far right. The photograph was taken from across the room, and a large plaid rug fills the foreground in the lower third of the image.
