Just never know what you'll find...

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?
