My grandpa in school

Class pictures sure have changed in the almost 80 years.

I recently stumbled upon The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archive's Electronic Records Archives & it prompted me to post this photo & read a little about education back then. 

3 grades worth on students & still only 13 in the class?? 

As an educator, It's still a mystery to me how someone can teach 3 graded in the same classroom.
Mr Richardson doesn't look like he had any problems keeping things under control.

I wonder who else is in the photo besides grandpa & Mr Richardson?
