About This Image:
This print of the old East Three Notch Elementary school in Andalusia, Alabama, is a sentimental piece for me. Although I did not grow up there, some of my earliest memories are of Andalusia and the house my grandmother lived in on College Street near East Three Notch. In fact, I have quite vivid memories at less than three years old of being on the playground that used to stand behind what is now Andalusia’s City Hall.
My mother and her brother attended East Three Notch Elementary, so the family connection to that old building is strong. But it is stronger still because in my own home town of Montezuma, Georgia, we had a nearly identical school built a few years after the one in Andalusia. And, yes, it was the one where I attended elementary school as well. It is kind of a coincidence, but I have since stumbled upon several other schools that appear to have been built in the same general style as East Three Notch in Andalusia. I have never determined if the were from the same architect’s plans or not, but if anyone knows more, I would love to know the rest of the story!
The general style, though, appears to have been popular around the time when East Three Notch School was built in 1914. I’ve seen the style referred to with various names. The most common terminology seems to be Late Gothic Revival. But I’ve also seen it called Collegiate Gothic, Tudor Gothic, and Institutional Gothic. Whatever you call it, it’s a beautiful old style of architecture that has a nice substantial feel to it that has always resonated with me.
Many of the old schoolhouses of the same vintage as East Three Notch are no longer schools. In fact, the one I attended here in Georgia met the wrecking ball years ago. That’s why I’m so proud of the citizens of Andalusia for preserving and re-using a piece of their city’s heritage architecture. After nearly 90 years as a schoolhouse, East Three Notch was renovated and now serves as a gorgeous city hall.
This artwork is based off photos I took on one of our last visits to Andalusia several years ago during homecoming week. And that accounts for the large floral “A” in the plaza in front of City Hall. It was in celebration of homecoming for Andalusia High School. Local pride runs deep in Andalusia!

Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
