Duncan Elementary

One of Duncan's beautiful heritage buildings is its Elementary school building built in 1913/1914. The building was designed by architect William Tuff Whiteway who built, beside many of British Columbia's schools, a variety of well known buildings at the beginning of the twentieth century. The land for the school was donated by Rev. Holmes (he built St Peters Anglican Church and several more in the area).
I took these photographs around the time the school celebrated its 100 year anniversary. A walk around.

    1. Thanks Scott, among the buildings in Duncan that are a century old, this one is definitely a favorite. On an early Sunday morning it has lots of room to walk around it (with camera) as well.
