  1. Quel beau projet. Pour une fois qu'un organisme public fait "beau".

  2. I went to that school in the early 50s from Kindergarten to Grade IV. The Principal's name was Mr. Fyles and one of my teacher's was named Miss Brown. I remember the overhead pipes running along the ceiling in the basement on my way to the Principal's office for scribbling on the blackboard at recess time. The upside though (and for the students as a whole), was assembling to watch the film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - a first for most of us I'm sure. There was a horse stable to the left side of the school and a wonderful candy store across the street where we could buy 3 blackballs for one penny.

    1. My god, I have the same memories of those days and that school. Mrs Brown was the nicest teacher. I remember the horse stable and the candy store. Why can't you find blackballs anymore. I remember taking them out of my mouth to see what colour they were as they got smaller.
      Those were the days.

  3. Hello Bette, do you have any pictures inside the school then? I'm doing a short clip video about Victoria school then and now.

  4. The horse stable housed the horses for Guaranteed Pure Milk. I remember walking home through that alleyway in the winter and slipping and falling onto horse poop.
