100-year-old chalkboard drawings found preserved during renovation

A group of workers renovating Emerson High School in Oklahoma City made a surprising discovery when they uncovered 100-year-old chalkboards with writing and art preserved as if it were done yesterday. When the school was upgrading nearly a century ago, they didn’t bother to take down the original chalkboards or even to wipe them off and this new renovation uncovered the visual treasure.

The images on the boards depict hygiene tasks, a mathematics lesson, music, and several references to pilgrims. A school district spokesperson reported that the school is working with the city to preserve the time-capsule chalk drawings.
