PS 22 BALTIMORE, MARYLAND SCHOOL — Wood Table Made from 100 year old wood from former [tear-down] school in 1987
I saw this table in a haberdashery store covered in stuff! I asked the curator to help me see the entire table, and he said the piece on the top was not connected, just sitting on the base. When I moved it, I noted the inscription–I was immediately intrigued and shouted, “SOLD,” as I knew I had a vision this would be the display table for our JNP Books: Jane & Jake’s Adventures to Awesome! (Photo attached if inscription on underside of top piece.)
The JNP Retail Shop display table is made from Georgia Pine Fir, and old redwood. The boards are the VERY LAST PIECES of 100 year old wood that came off the site, and of the original Baltimore Middle School, P.S. 22, located in Southwest Baltimore.
Curious about the school name, I found that the school was rebuilt–The George Washington Elementary School– and active as a book/literacy promoting curriculum!
