Spotted this one today in Lanark on Black Creek road, near Joe's Lake.



We have a bunch of school pics to post but we need to find them.

Was gonna use this one in a tag, but then I thought I'd aim it more specifically:






S, here's the clue:

5 minutes from my house, and there's no charge.



And it's not the old busted down one a stone's throw from my place.

Another old school from Tim Whalen:







Not sure if this is a school but it was included with the pictures so I assume it's got something to do with it.

Of course, that was before the twist-off caps so we had to customize it.



Original furniture from the teacher's apartment, "Not for sale" we have a very good idea how much them are worth. Could buy someone a very nice used bike that old Quebec furniture.Maybe a little resto project for me someday to bring back to the original blue and greens, already looked.





Up the attic anyone....lots of stuff up there, I ain't showing.





Close the door....!



And have a drink with the BFI brother-in law!He is big them old school walls are high....!



A couple drinks and....bathroom floor hasn't changed much, just as I remember from 30 years ago when it was our....party school, ahum house. If walls could talk....but not sure I'd want that floor to talk.



^^^^ The chamber pot well, some may have noticed, that's a family heirloom....we like old crap!

Great post! We also live in a school, a 2 room Continuation School. And our bikes live in a 1 room school next door. We love old schools!
