What a wonderful site!!!
My mother and her family lived on Shillito in the 1920's (ran a boarding house) and she, her brother and sister went to "Rashid" elementary school. Do you know of this one? Any information would be appreciated. They lived there for 10 years, moving back to KY after the 1929 stock market crash,

S: I haven't found any info on Rashid. Did they live on Shillito downtown? My guess is the school is gone. I'll keep looking.

S - if you are still following Rasching (I think that is the correct spelling) was also called the 10th District School at Elm Street and Central Parkway.

Thank you so much for the information on this school!! I will send it to my Aunt, the only one still living, and see if it is familiar to her. They did live down town, near the Shillito Department Store. My mother talked about playing behind the store, probably in the delivery area (in the alley?).
