Black-and-white photo of the exterior of the Ontario Ladies' College (now Trafalgar Castle School) in Whitby.
Notes:
As a response to John Ham Perry's "castle" in the area now known as Kinsmen park, Sheriff Nelson Reynolds built Trafalgar Castle in 1859. He paid $70,000 dollars at the time, which was an incredibly large amount of money. Eventually, the Methodists convinced Whitby council that it would be in their best interest to make the building into a ladies' school. Ontario Ladies' College, as it would come to be called, is now known as Trafalgar Castle School, a private institution for the education of girls in grades 6-12.
