This image was scanned from the publication - How Firm a Foundation: A History of the Township of Cramahe and the Village of Colborne in Cramahe's Digital Archives (3bk), p.66. The caption reads: "Old Colborne School: Early sources say a red-painted school was erected in 1821 south of the Market Square. This photo is not that early, but could be the same school, ca. 1860. Unfortunately, the names of those in the picture are not available."
