14 Old-School Back-to-School Photos from Around the World
In the adult world, Labor Day marks the end of summer—but back when we were kids, the first day of school meant that summer vacation was officially over. We’ve gathered 14 vintage photos of students from around the world who swapped their swimsuits for uniforms, sharpened their pencils, and collected their books for another school year. Despite the decades and oceans that separate these school kids, one thing’s for sure: Nobody is happy when summer vacation is over.
