Exploring History: School’s out!

Congratulations to all the hardworking students in our community on another year completed. In celebration of the end of the school year, our photograph features the Niagara High School Cadet Corps showing off their pyramid-building skills. In 1928, these young men were training on the Niagara Commons and showing off their skills for the camera. Their high school was across from the Commons on Castlereagh Street (now the entrance of the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum). In the background you can see 59 Castlereagh St., the Patterson Home, which still exists today near Davy Street. It is amazing to think of how open the Commons space was in 1928 compared to today. Enjoy the summer, young pupils.
