Description:
This postcard depicts a class at the Oakland Public School in 1910. The teacher is Kate Halliday Hunter, who briefly taught there; however, she was married on December 28th, 1910, and at that time married women were not permitted to teach. The postcard was sent to her, and dated 1912.

The Hunter family is an early, prominent Scotland family. Samuel Gordon Hunter first came to Scotland with his first wife Emily in 1869. He was a horticulturist and established his farm on Simcoe St. The farm primarily grew the flowers that he sold for a living; he was particularly fond of dahlias. He also kept bees, and raised chickens, cows and geese. During the winter, he would often walk from Scotland to other communities such as Paris and Simcoe to take orders; in the spring, he would bicycle out to deliver the flowers.

This photograph was provided by Charles and Margaret Hunter during a Digitization Day event held by the County of Brant Public Library. Do you have any historical items and are interested in helping preserve our county's history online? Contact the library at (519) 442-2433 for more information.
