Northlea school photos

Did you know that Northlea Elementary and Middle School opened in 1944?

Below are some photos from the collection of a parent in the school’s early years. Elizabeth (“Betty”) Duck was an original 1946 homeowner on Divadale Drive, and these photos feature – and are shared with the support of – her daughter, Mary Jane Backer. Thank you to her and also to neighbour Kelly Nicol for scanning and making these photos available for a wider audience.
