Temple Avenue School – These youngsters were Newnan public school first-graders in 1920. The photo was donated by Florence N. West and originally ran in The Newnan Times-Herald in February 1989. The picture was made before Mrs. West was born, and was among several old family photos. Mrs. West later attended the school in the first grade, and her teacher was Miss Maggie Brown, after whom the former Maggie Brown Kindergarten on Clark Street was named.
