golden rule days

Gordon Bay School c1905/6 in Muskoka Area of Ontario

Toronto. Remember your grade school days? My dad went to a little one room country school. At his school, children couldn’t attend unless they could walk the miles from farm to school house. He was seven when he started school. Until then, he was home taught by his mother.

This photo, enhanced by George Dunbar, is courtesy of the Humphrey Museum in Parry Sound.  As mentioned in earlier posts, museums and archives are a rich source of photographic images and history. In this case the Museum is located in Northern Ontario.

A big thanks to George for finding and sharing this piece of Canadian history and the idea of searching for school images.
