Building Central School 1906 donated by Clark family

from Edward Avery/ collection and his family history to this school
My mother’s family attended the school.
Her eldest sister (Elma Mihell Copeland) was in the first (I believe) Continuation class about 1910
(There is a picture in Gregory Scott’s Arkona book page 182 of Elma (Ella) in the group of graduates 1910.) 
Her middle sister (Marjorie Burgar Copeland) attended Continuation from (I believe)  1914-1916. The family moved to London in the summer of 1916 because my grandfather (Dr. Edward Mihell Copeland) did not want to drive to Watford twice a week so that Marjorie could attend high school – as he had for the eldest daughter Elma.  Therefore I think the picture to have been taken after 1910 (Continuation school is shown) and no later than 1916.  Elma seems to have been the child most interested in photography so I assume she took the picture.
