Thank you to Vicki Hanrahan Ainslie for sharing this Thompson Studio photograph of the Ilion Class of 1910. Her brother, Stephen M. Hanrahan, a photographer and photo editor, scanned the original black and white photograph. The photograph had been folded in half which broke it in the middle. It was taped in the center with cellophane tape.

Stephen did a fantastic job of photo-editing the image and Vickie and her husband graciously shared it with the Ilion Alumni site. Vicki's husband, William B. Ainslie, is the son of Margaret Ellen (Fay) Ainslie IHS 1934 and the grandson of Harrison Stuart Fay, a member of the Class of 1910. He is also the grandson of Ellen Wicks Foothorape IHS 1912. Vicki included scans of the back of the photograph which listed the names of the students in the photo. These were compared to the names that appeared in related newspaper articles.
