I have borrowed an old collection of postcards from a 'cousin' whom I met through genealogical research of my Tanner family. Among this collection is one of the "SOUTH WARD SCHOOL, PARIS, ONT." It has a postmark of Paris, Ont. Jul 20/11 on it. It appears to have been written by a Sunday School teacher to Miss Daisy Crouse, Paris, P.O. Ont. and has the following messeage "Sorry you were absent last Sunday. Memory verses for July 23rd the 23rd Psalm. Picnic on Saturday July 22nd at Burt's Grove. Yours Sincerely, Mrs A Kay" My notes: Daisy was the daughter of Nettie (Tanner) Crouse & they lived in Paris at that time. It is great to be able to find further references from the various internet sites - an advantage we never had a few years ago. Thank you. Elaine

South Ward Schools, Paris, Ontario

These photographs depict two historic South Ward schools in Paris, Ontario. The older school was built in 1868; the newer school replaced it c. 1900. The lower image was printed on the thirteenth page of photographs in At the Forks of the Grand: Volume II by D. A. Smith.
