A chemistry teacher directs Fryeburg Academy high school boys in performing experiments. The students are dressed in heavy coats because the buildings did not have central heat, while the teacher must wear his appropriate teaching attire of a full suit.

Heat was probably supplied by a wood stove using slab wood from the mill or by coal. The classroom is Rm. 10 in the old building.
