Last week's question was "Where Are These People?" and many of West Hartford Patch's astute readers were absolutely correct with their guesses.
"Whitman (Center) School," commented "Grandma." Nan Glass, a former mayor of West Hartford, added, "I think they are on the lawn of the old Rutherford Building, originally the Center School at the corner of Raymond and Memorial Roads, where Blue Back Square is now."
"I agree with Nan," commented Judith Wawro. "The Rutherford Building held grades 4-6 when I was in grade school, and grades 1-3 were in what now houses the Police Dept. When Sedgwick School was built many of us went there for elementary and junior high."
Dave Gabrielle added, "In its later years the Rutherford Building was also an annex to Town Hall. Several offices including Parks & Recreation, Engineering and the Director of Public Works were housed in the building."
"I really like that the builders in Blue Back Square named the building on this site the Rutherford Building," wrote Tracey Wilson.
According to the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society: "This photo is of some of the members of the West Hartford High School class of 1907 sitting outside the school located on the corner of Memorial and Raymond Road."
