Description:
Black and white outdoor panoramic photograph of the students and faculty of the Mennonite Bible School in front of a brick school building, in Kitchener, Ontario, in February 1932.
Notes:
The Ontario Mennonite Bible School (OMBS) began in 1907 with a four week class held in the Berlin Mennonite Church (now First Mennonite Church in Kitchener, Ontario). The school was known as the Bible Study Class until the 1920s. “Bible school” became more common by 1930, and a new constitution in 1933 formalized the name as Ontario Mennonite Bible School, sometimes referred to as the Kitchener Bible School. In 1951 a more advanced “Institute” was added, leading to the name Ontario Mennonite Bible School & Institute. The school closed in 1969.

Ernest Denton was a photographer in Berlin/Kitchener from approximately 1912 to 1955.

This photograph is in poor condition and has several ripples and creases in it.
