About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

My New School: 1956

My New School: 1956

In 1953 I started grade 1 in Riverside (now Windsor), Ontario, at Edith Cavell School. That building, built in 1919, had grades 1 through 13 jammed into it, and our combined class of grades 1 and 2 had 44 kids in a basement classroom. My teacher was Mrs. Trotter for two years. For grade 3 we moved to the top floor to a room with a view. The baby boom was in full swing, and in September of 1956 for grade 4 we moved to this brand new school named Princess Anne. We had an extra week of summer holidays because the school was not finished in time. This photo shows a group of kids at the front of the school, with my mother standing behind the card table. I am standing beside the table with my tongue sticking out. Princess Anne was demolished in 2009, and replaced with a new building named Dr. David Suzuki Public School. It features solar energy collectors and advanced environmental features. The Edith Cavell School building now houses condominiums. View full size.
