Built in 1937, and located on Linden Avenue (formerly Connolly Street), the Parkdale School would become too small for its growing community. Less than twenty years after its construction, a new one would be built in 1956.
The grade 6 class in the photo includes: Back Row: George Worth, Edmond Gaudet, Henry MacLean and Vic Livingstone. Front Row: Helen Lund, Dorothy Rodd, Catherine MacEachern, Ruby Hudson, Phyllis Coles. We don’t know who the photo bombers in the window behind the class are but they make for a great picture!
