Hiroshima Municipal First Elementary School was founded in 1932 with the primary objective of equipping pupils with ready-to-use practical skills. To train boys in industrial skills, the school had classrooms for woodworking, woodworking machine use, metalworking machine use, sheet-metal working, drafting, blacksmithing, and printing. For training in commerce, there were classrooms for abacus and bookkeeping courses, and a lab for practical training. Girls were provided with classrooms for lessons in kimono-sewing, dressmaking, tea ceremony, flower arrangement, cooking, and laundering. The footage was possibly filmed to coincide with the school’s 5th anniversary in 1937, when a commemorative booklet was also published. Part of the school building remained in use after World War II as Danbara Junior High School until March 2011.
