Just to update your info. The picture in your webpage is the 2nd location of the school yard and is owned by a friend of mine to this day. The original site for #514, established in 1899 was on our property at SE1/4 Sec. 17-30-5 W2nd. along the shore at Good Spirit Lake. It was re-established at its present location in or around 1913. The History of Buchanan book published by the R.M. of Buchanan has an article on it. As well, I am a descendant of the landowner and our family has been present there since 1892. In addition, I have family diaries from that period which even records some of the teachers names. You can read our history at Our history is at the bottom of our Homepage. It is very interesting. I love history and we have an abundance here at Canora Beach. Incidentally, on my Facebook page under my name is a treasure trove of pictures and history. Albert Oldroyd was my ancestor. My Facebook page is totally open to the public, you do not need to be a friend to have a look. Just find my site, click on Photos and then click on Albums and happy hunting.
