Greetings! I was so delighted to discover your website which included pictures of Allentown Union Free School.

My Grandmother was Kathryn Snowdon who married Arthur M. Barnes. His sister is Sadie Barnes whose picture is also on your website. Below is a photo of the adult Barnes siblings with their father:

 3 of the photos below are of Allentown Union Free School students; the photos belonged to my Grandmother.  The 4th photo is also probably inclusive of Allentown students and perhaps townspeople.
