H. H. Hamm, Toledo, Ohio

There is no description on the back of the card.

These Normal Schools were established to provide training for public school teachers throughout the state. As time passed, they either closed, or in the case of Western, evolved into more comprehensive training and research institutions.

As this building was erected in 1925, and the institution was known as a Normal School only until 1927, it is certain this card dates from the mid-1920s.
