It’s Wayback Wednesday brought to you by Cavalcade Color Lab! For decades, the Jackrabbits program has been teaching young people to cross-country ski. Do you recognize any of these Jackrabbits from the early 1980s? (Thanks to Mary Spring for sharing this photo with us!)

Last week we shared this photo:

In 1896 Elizabeth W. Morley, who came from Saint John, New Brunswick, bought land on Hanes Street to build a school—the Morley College, Conservatory of Music and School of Art. Morley taught music, French, mathematics, drawing, bookkeeping, and literature. The school was advertised as a ladies’ college but Morley also accepted male students and gave instruction in general education. In April 1899 the building burned to the ground and was never rebuilt.

  1. I love your Wayback Wednesday photographs .You did a great story in 2016 of St Mary’s Anglican church at Aspdin in Stisted Township where Wm. Crompton was the minister in the late 1880’s. Rev. Crompton had also been involved with the Anglican Church at Magnetawan. A.J. Casson of the Group of Seven did a famous painting of that Church .You can see a painting of the church on the internet . I was wondering if you could do a little story of the church. I am interested because my friend Anne Crompton Lich is the great grand daughter of Rev. William Crompton.
