Here's one not many here have likely seen. It's no longer a school, but some kind of missionary retreat. It's where I went to elementary school 50+ years ago, in McKenzie Island in NW Ont. My Dad was the teacher. The backstop was wood back then, and I don't remember all those nice windows. I got smashed into the backstop when I was about 7, and broke my nose. Softball was a rough sport up there

Everything in town was wood frame, and houses burned down regularly in the winter. Ours was one of the few that survived the chimney fires, and it's still there to this day.
