Victoria School on de Maisonneuve

Abandoned for many years, the old Victoria School on de Maisonneuve, established in 1887, is being renovated. Hopefully they will restore it to its former glory. Love this building.

  1. I noticed the new copper on the building last summer when we went back to Montreal and was glad.

    My mom used to take driving lesson courses in that building in the 80's!

  4. I went there in the early '70s. My very first teacher was Miss Davis. I remember that she and her husband took me to see the Irish Rovers.

    Hello, Miss Davis!

  5. We are currently writing a renovation project about this beautiful school. Anyone has an idea, how many rooms per floor? Thanks.

    1. My grandfather was the caretaker at Victoria School from about 1908-1928.My father's address was 40 St. Luke St. I imagine the family lived in part of the school or just next to it. I recently came across an old photo of the family in front of the school taken in about 1914. You can tell from the brickwork around the entrance that it is Victoria School. The steps have been changed. If I had an e-mail address I could send a copy of the old photo...it is in bad shape but I tried to have it restored. K. Brown Herman

  7. My mom and aunts went to school there in the 40's. Does anyone know if there are school books with photos of the students?
