Description:
Black and white reprint of the exterior of Mary Street School, Oshawa.
Notes:
Mary Street School was born out of controversy in the growing Village of Oshawa. A public meeting decided that two schools would be built to lessen the over-crowding in the one which already existed. A four-roomed school house was erected on Mary St. between Brock and Colborne Sts. for a sum of $4000. The school opened officially in 1877, and an addition was opened in 1920. It has also been referred to as "Colborne Street School" and "North School."
