Vintage Photographs of School Students in Toronto

Labour Day is upon us and that means back to school for children, teens and young adults. To celebrate back to school and the end of the summer, I put together a vintage gallery of School Students in Toronto from 1900 – 1950.

Check out the gallery and be sure to share it with friends. Enjoy!
