Do you recognize any of the students pictured?

A reader from Raleigh recently mailed in an old photograph in the form of a postcard.

The photo appears to be of schoolchildren from the early 1900s. Handwritten on the back, barely legible, is “My Class, Mill Spring, NC, 1918.”

The reader says the photo came into their possession at an antique show where a seller offered shoeboxes of photographs and postcards. It was acquired at least a decade ago.
