  1. Not a smile anywhere to be seen. No fun here! Cute bunch of kids though. Oh, and no children of color either, what the heck?

  2. Excellent post- Would like to see more. I lived in St. Johns Woods war time housing property. On Mapleleaf Drive. Went to Oregon Ship Grade school, broke my wrist on the parallel Bars in Pier Park. My sister went to Sitton High school. She was a year older than me. I can’t get to the Portland area that much so I really enjoy this sight


  3. Looks like some of the older kids in the back are singing, or at least answering in unison. Might explain the blank looks on the others: shyness about being asked to sing in front of a cameraman.
