I got all exciting thinking this was my first class in Levittown (but wondered why none of the names were clicking at all), then I saw the date on the bottom of the picture, Jan. of 1957. I was still in 6th grade down in Washington, DC and only moved to Levittown in the summer of '57. Had Mr. Brannigan for 7th grade during the '57-'58 school year and then was redistricted over to DAJHS (thanks be) the next year for 8th grade. Mr. B was great -- a very cool guy and a fine teacher.
