Atikokan Ontario, Grade Eight class, 1954.

In 2012 Jay Blacksher sent me a cropped version of this photo. He said it was his last year in Atikokan, although he doesn't seem to appear in the photo. Now, thanks to the dilligence of Susan Bryk, this complete, original photo was provided by Dwayne Pastuck, who also provided the names. The calendar (as well as a notation in the photo margin) reveals it was taken on March 5, 1954.
