So I guess this means the cold war is over?

One thing I love about the Chicago schools is the great old buildings.  Many of the north side schools were built around the turn of the century and have so much more character than the modern schools that are all over the suburbs.  My son’s school has great woodwork, big windows, and lots of character.

At the begining of the school year I noticed this sign still up from what I assume was the 50’s? (I lack brain space for history so feel free to correct me.)  I imagine that kids back then would do drills where they ran to the (supposedly) bomb-resistant parts of the school.  Not sure where they crammed all those kids, but the current bomb shelter at our school also doubles as the teachers’ lounge.

I loved that quirky little sign.  And now it’s gone.  Darn, I should have tried to nab it for my basement.
