    Not sure if this is a school but it was included with the pictures so I assume it's got something to do with it.

    Great post! We also live in a school, a 2 room Continuation School. And our bikes live in a 1 room school next door. We love old schools!

    This post is a wake-up call, so Tim can find the thread on his phone which is apparently a rotary dial version.
