Conant Library, Winchester New Hampshire

Here I have been idly looking at an old postcard of what I assumed was Winchester High School. Thinking is this where my mother went to high school? My mother was born in Minneapolis Minnesota and spent part of her youth there and then in Omaha Nebraska. In 1926 when she was in her teens the family moved back East to the Boston area, living briefly in Newton before settling in Winchester (Mass.).

The family home in Winchester Mass.

My mother attended Winchester High School and then went on to Connecticut College for Women, graduating in 1932.

Examining my postcard more closely I realized the picture was of a building in Winchester New Hampshire. New Hampshire NOT Massachusetts. So my daydreams had gone off on a wrong track. Nevermind I enjoyed the diversion and learned something in the process.
