Old Fashioned School Room

Gravelbourg, Historical Site

This old fashioned school room is set up in one of the old classrooms in the Gravelbourg Elementary School, formerly known as Le Couvent Jésus-Marie.

The types of desks set up in the classroom are Fashion School Desks; they were first manufactured in 1881. The desk features a Patent T-head, thus eliminating screws and bolts by joining the wood of the desk top, back, and seat to the legs, which are made of cast iron.

5 x 7 fine art greeting cards, featuring these images are available for purchase at Café Paris in Gravelbourg, SK.

Entranced by rural and urban decay. I am drawn to these forlorn sites because they emote conflicting sentiments of beauty and disintegration.
