1980 Report Card
At the end of my fourth grade year in Denton, Texas I received this report card from my teacher Mrs. Swafford. Technically referred to as a "Progress and Achievement Report," it came, as all of my elementary school report cards did, enclosed in an envelope printed by the First State Bank of Denton, an icon of the community whose logo was imprinted on countless textbook covers over the years.
My mom recently turned over a box containing this report card to me. Also tucked inside the envelope was my old library card from the Emily Fowler Public Library, complete with a metal plate containing my identification number. High tech!
These are some of many curious items collected in JD’s House of Miscellany.
My report card and library card have also been spotted in these places:
Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.
This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
This photo was posted to Flickr on 26 October 2010. The last time I checked, it had 15,325 views on Flickr.
The media type of this image is "photo." The original file type was "jpg." The photo's dimensions are 1024 x 681, giving it landscape orientation.
Unless otherwise noted, the image was created by me, JD Hancock.
