While other people gaze longingly at classic works of art in galleries, you can find me searching through old city directories on Ancestry.

Like the 1893-1898 Little Rock city directories, looking for Callaways.

And finding that Julia Estelle Callaway, one of the old maid daughters of Jonathan Wilson Callaway and Ann E Vickers, was a school teacher at Little Rock's Fort Steele School from at least 1895-1898.

So then, I had to look for a photo and information about the school, which I found archived at the Little Rock School District's website.

What a hoot.

Wonder if her classroom was up or down?
