4. Siskiyou County High School
Siskiyou County High School about 1916, from a photo album belonging to my grandmother, Muriel Berry. She and my grandfather Howard McLaughlin, were in the class of 1917. Listed as SUHS, Siskiyou Union High School in the album. Sorry for the picture quality, these albums were not stored well over the years. Hope the pictures are of some interest anyway.
