A tablo is an elaborate class picture. It is a tradition in Slovakia for such class pictures to be made by graduating gymnasium students and to be displayed in a shopkeeper’s window for all to see. They are often entertaining. The tradition of tablo is talked about more in the article – Graduation Parades. Below is a tablo from 1956, as is noted in the tablo. It was sent in by a reader of 52 Weeks in Slovakia. The school is Dunajska, across from “Liga Passage.” A bust of the great educator Jan Amos Komensky (a.k.a. Comenius) is shown in the tablo.
