    I wonder who the maker was of the short drop school house regulator on the back wall.

    It has a typewriter and a pencil sharpener, I cannot see any other mod cons

    Is the water tap in the foreground the 1920s version of the office water cooler?

    That big white box probably has the ice in it to keep the water cool. Any of those guys wearing wristwatches or pocket watches?
