GADE1-1 Vol. 2 Reedsburg's old South School. "That bell in the tower was moved to the second South School when this structure was torn down. It was installed on the roof of that schoolhouse until the summer of 1970 when it was once more moved, this time to

the Middle School on the south side. This gives a pretty good detail of how the

kids dressed in the 1880's. There's a hand pump for water at the left on a raised

platform - this time the sidewalk seems to be in pretty good shape. And about

those little buildings on either side of the schoolhouse.....That first little boy, near us at the sidewalk corner on left, he's got that woolen cap pulled down over his

eyes and knowing kids habits, I'll bet his nose ought to be wiped. From what we

see of the street here, the first step from the sidewalk corner must have been a

doozey." (Caption by Rueben Gade)
