As many of Philadelphia’s public schools cut programs during the Great Depression in their struggle to stay open, sights such as this art class at the Logan Demonstration School in 1933 became rare. The Logan Demonstration School acted as an institution for teachers around the Greater Philadelphia area to learn and develop new techniques as part of their education. The school, located at Seventeenth Street and Lindley Avenue in the city’s Logan section, is now known as James Logan Elementary School.
