Photographer's Note: "This one is now an elementary school again; it reminds me of a prison and must have been terribly intimidating to a little first grader on the first day of school." - Steven Taylor, Austin, TX

Central Elementary School, Donna, TX

It's a beautiful, old building. I was heartsick some years back when I heard it was to be torn down. Somehow it was rescued. The brick is gorgeous. I was a first grader there in 1949. It certainly was NOT intimidating. It's a lovely old building with some architectural design, instead of the square blah buildings seen nowadays. All of my siblings and lots of friends went to school there, too. I WAS very grateful, though, to see photograph by Mr. Taylor on your web site. I'm writing an article about my first grade experience in old CE. It was fun to see it again. We haven't lived in Donna for more than 25 years. Thanks, Linda Smith, April 09, 2008
