Circa 1895 photograph of a group of students that I believe attended school in Dexter, Maine.
Thankfully, the students are identified, but the rows are uneven, making fitting the ID to the student a bit difficult in some cases.
In order to date the photo, I checked the 1900 Census for Dexter, Maine, for the boys in the front row at extreme left and extreme right. The boy at left is Brett Morse, shown with a birth date of April 1888. The boy at right is Harold Small, shown with a birth date of August 1887.
Front Row [I'm assuming from left to right] - Brett Morse, Norman Brown, Earl Parsons, Karl Morse, Charles Dustin, Arthur Small, Harold Small
Second Row - Gertrude Burns, Edna Carr, Angie Ryan, June Parsons, Charles Ryan, Morris Dustin, George Potter, Bill Haines, Marion Small
Third Row - Louise Hatch, Hattie Young, Ola Bailey, Inez Dustin, Minnie Thompson, Grace Moore, Edith Hall, Maude Kimball
Fourth Row - Clara Hughes, Emma Giles, Mamie Gove, Eva Witherell, Susan Eldridge, Ethel Pooler, Mamie Wheeler
