This coincided with the open house for the new Waseca Central High School in Waseca, which they probably toured on the occasion of this photo. Pictured from left are the Peter Bischmanns, Mrs. Ben Bishman, Mary Krassin, and Mabel Anderson. Mabel lived with Mary at this time and was in the 1925 Waseca graduating class.
