School Days by bkbinthecity

School Days

This building was built in 1909 as a temporary school until the Westmount school opened. Due to certain circumstances the Westmount school did not open until 1918.
In 1918 this building was moved to the Glenora neighborhood and served as the Glenora school from 1918 to 1940 when a new school was built.
This building went on to have a variety of uses over the years. The latest tenant was a church.
Today it sits vacant and is up for sale. It will most likely be torn down and sold as the land only to some developer
I wouldn't have guessed it was that old - looked quite modern - hate to think it will be torn down!

The trees and building look nice with the snow... looks mighty cold though!
November 17th, 2020  
Lovely shot and tones, love all that snow.
November 17th, 2020  
I hope it doesn't get torn down. Would make for a nice museum, shop or even a nice home.
November 17th, 2020  
looks like it has been cared for over the years. ready for another chapter to be written

It's already winter in Edmonton? Nice building, hope it doesn't get torn down...
November 17th, 2020  
Nice tones and colours, and interesting narrative
November 17th, 2020  
Lovely snowy capture. We destroy such places too quickly. Well, but money rules.
November 17th, 2020  
Hopefully the building stays put and finds a new occupant. It doesn't look that old.
November 17th, 2020  
Cool history and building!
November 17th, 2020  
Looks like a nice building that's in good shape. Shame that it will be torn down.
November 17th, 2020  
What a lovely angle you took this from.
November 17th, 2020  
We shot a winter wonderland. It’s nice to see that it’s still standing.
November 17th, 2020  
I just like the lines and colours. A lovely picture, very well taken.
November 17th, 2020  
What a shame as it looks a well maintained & attractive building.
November 17th, 2020  
A lovely building, shame it's no longer in use
November 17th, 2020  
kind of a waste
November 17th, 2020  
Nice winter scene, too bad it's no longer in use.
November 17th, 2020  
That's a lot of snow! Lovely capture!
November 17th, 2020  
A nice looking building but given its age, I'm sure there are many things that need updating and repair, more expensive than razing the building and starting over.
November 17th, 2020  
Beautiful building and history
November 17th, 2020  
Great photo and history info
November 17th, 2020  
pity it is demolished, it still looks nice and reusable
November 17th, 2020  
Great P.O.V. Interesting history - I hope it doesn't get demolished.
November 17th, 2020  
For such an old building it looks very modern. It's a very attractive building and it would be a shame to tear it down.
November 17th, 2020  
love all the history and so sad about maybe it's demolition
November 17th, 2020  
It looks like it has been added on to over the years.
November 17th, 2020  
What a lovely building and such a lot of snow already. U hope someone comes along to love this place.
November 17th, 2020  
Oh you have a bit of snow.............makes for a great photo!
November 17th, 2020  
Great capture and nice history.
November 17th, 2020  
Love how the trees frame the shot.
November 18th, 2020  
My first thought was "You have a lot of snow already."
November 18th, 2020  
That's sad that it may be torn down. I like older buildings, so much character.
November 18th, 2020  
Now that is recycling for you! Great capture.
November 18th, 2020  
Nice architecture; hopefully, someone will buy it and repurpose it one more time
November 18th, 2020  
I also hope it gets a new life, it looks nice in this snowy scene.
November 18th, 2020  
What a splendid shot. Can't imagine snow...yet. We're still basking in an Indian Summer which started in March!
November 18th, 2020  
Great shot! Such a 'life' this building has had & it still looks well maintained....Hope someone puts it to good use again.
