School Days 7 – Elementary Mr. Watson.

Today I’m going to present you with mystery. This photo was taken on, or about, the 16th of April 1958. The other photos are all of a school open house, an opportunity for students to show off their handiwork to proud parents. It was also an opportunity for the staff of the school to prove to citizens that their tax dollars were being spent wisely and effectively.

This photo wasn’t published in the Free Press or the County Herald (sister papers) and therefore we don’t have a caption to print today. I know that the gentleman kneeling is Port McNicoll Public School Principal, Lyall Thorpe. However, the identity of the young man is unknown – at least to me. I’m sure we will know his identity very soon though.

Please leave a comment here or on the Facebook page that brought you here if you know who this young man is.2006 0020 4347.JPG

  1. I don’t know the young man. I do recognize the wood items in the picture, they were made by the 7th & 8th grade students in shop class. Both boys and girls took shop. I made the record stand in the background.
    I believe this was an Open House where the parents could come & see our finished projects in Home Ec. & Shop.
