Description:
Sepia coloured photograph of a young girl in a school uniform standing beside a chair. There is a two-storey stone building in the background, probably new Wawanosh Home for Girls which opened at the Shingwauk (St. Mary’s River) in 1879.

Notes:
"To accommodate girls, a separate residential school building was established on a 15-acre site 5 km away, just north of the village centre. It was named the Wawanosh Home for Girls. Construction of this grand two-storey stone building commenced in spring 1877 and the first ten girls arrived that fall, before work was completed. The building fund was depleted in 1878, prompting new subscriptions for funding. As the federal Government was now more involved in native affairs (following passage of the recent Indian Act of 1876), it agreed to make an annual grant to the Wawanosh Home, provided enrolment was not less than fifteen. The Home was officially opened on August 19th, 1879 with 14 girls in residence."
