Seventy-seven in one class at Essendon State School!
Ah, the good old days, when there were seventy-seven children in one class! Essendon State School, Grade 6, circa 1915-16. From the Moonee Valley Library Service Heritage Collection, HER-00182. The venerable old peppercorns in this photo have lately come tumbling down to accommodate building works. You can see this and other monster class sizes on the Time Travellers website.
