Shakespeare on the Island

There was a population here,
Of assorted pioneer’s sons,
Quoting William Shakespeare with ease,
His sonnets, the prose, the puns…

Farmers, a sheriff, a crook, an airman,
A horse trader, a chief, and the preacher:
They had one common person they hated,
The one-room school house teacher.

Successful men in their later life,
Most were veterans of the war…
All included the now cherished teacher,
When recalling their tales of yore.

    Where is this picture taken. It is not the one on the island is it?
