Students Attending Cooking Class - Black and White Photograph
share it:

While this is obviously not a college classroom, it is an interesting photo considering the increased popularity of the culinary arts. And while culinary programs are common place on college campuses, this antique photograph, circa 1850, shows young girls learning how to cook - a common practice in the 1800s. Unlike in today's adventitious culinary environment, during the 1800s most cooks were young girls who worked to help support their families. This all changed with the The Fair Labor Standards Act 1938.
