Description
Black and white image of the Doon School. About 50 young students gather with two adults outside a brick schoolhouse in the former Township of Waterloo village of Doon.
Notes
This schoolhouse stood on the north side of Doon Village Road, a short distance west of today's Homer Watson Boulevard in Kitchener. Doon School opened in 1878 as the school for Waterloo Township's School Section 27 and was destroyed by fire in 1956. A new school was built nearby on the south side of Doon Village Road. It is called Doon Public School and in 2020 is operated by the Waterloo Region District School Board. According to the Joint Annual Report of the Inspectors of Public Schools, the teachers at Doon School in 1907 were Mr. J.A. George and Miss C. Hartman.

This image is in excellent condition.
