Back-to-school fashion circa 1936

One of the members of the Kolts family, who lived on Corralitas Drive in Silver Lake, was dressed up and ready to head off to class, most likely at Allesandro Street Elementary, said Diane Edwardson of the Corralitas Red Car Property blog.  Edwardson obtained the 1936 photo from Pat Kolts but it’s not clear if the photo is of Pat or her sister. With classes starting this week or next at many neighborhood schools, Edwardson has some advice for drivers:

Slow down and get off your cell phones while driving the narrow hillside streets.
