TAG means Grupo Escolar Thomaz Antonio Gonzaga or I Grupo Escolar which was the very 1st Primary School inaugurated in Marilia in the early 1930s on Avenida Sampaio Vidal. Then, in 1936 they built a brand-new building on Rua Pedro de Toledo which stands up to date (2014) and I Grupo moved there in 1937.

TAG at some unspecified time... it could be 1958, 1959, 1960... boys still wore suspenders then but if you look really hard you'll see that most of the boys are not wearing them suspenders which indicates a later date rather than an earlier one.
