Last week’s Remember When mystery photo, above left, showed the front of West Park School, which was located from 1924 to 1959 on West 10th Street, where the Stein High School campus is now.

The school had a primary wing with kindergarten-to-fourth-grade classes and a main section for fifth-through-eighth-grade classes. All students in primary classes in Tracy — at West Park, Central and South schools — attended classes in fifth through eighth grades at West Park.

After being found to be an earthquake hazard, the original school was torn down in 1959.

In its place, a new K-3 West Park School was constructed. Classes later became part of South/West Park School, and the space was taken over by the Stein campus for high school students, named for longtime school Trustee George Stein and his wife, Evelyn, a veteran kindergarten teacher.

Today’s Remember When mystery photo shows a Tracy man holding a Speed Graphic camera. Who was he, and what was his occupation in Tracy?
