I don't quite remember separate entrances but the elementary school I went to the boys and girls had separate recess areas. A long time ago!! MB

Great find, brattcat!

You just reminded me of a quite paste era. Beautiful image and thanks for the memories (of youth).

So where's the girls entrance?

The little things must have been much more exciting back then. "Look, a boy!" Giggle, giggle.

The not-so-good old days. But I don't remember them. So far as I can recall, boys and girls entered through the same door. Well, the boys usually ran through the door knocking the girls down - especially after school!

How funny. I didn't know there used to be separate entrances. Glad those days are gone. Although, I think Jacob is right and maybe it would be safer for the girls to have their own door.

Separate, but equal!?

I seem to remember that from a local Catholic school. Of course it was all boys for years and then became girls too. I had forgotten.

I go back a ways, but even I can't remember separate entrances in schools. My first reaction was that it was an entrance to a Boys Club.

This image is a delight, BC. THe texture, the subdued colours, the geometry. THis is the sort of shot that I crave and that my eye searches for all the time. Bravo.

I'm no expert in education, but there's something to be said for it. I went to a co-ed elementary school but an all-boys high school. It was a good thing for me at the time.
