It's a new school year - perhaps 110 schools ago

Today starts classes for the 2020-21 academic year at Ohio Northern University. Here's a colorized post card photo showing a much earlier student body. We're not certain of the year, but based on student dress, it feels like circa 1910.

And, it appears that bow ties are never really out of fashion.

The wording at the bottom of the photo reads: "An acre of students on Ohio Northern University, Ada, Ohio."

This photo is from the collection of the Ada Public Library.
