Photographer's Note

I walked south along Wiggins Road from the Student Centre, then turned right on College Street. It was only a short distance before I spotted the Little Stone School to the north (this view is from the northeast of the School).

Construction of this the first school in Saskatoon took place in 1888 CE, at Broadway Avenue and 12th Street - actually Saskatoon was still a Temperance Colony at the time - on the east bank of the South Saskatchewan River. The School quickly expanded to two buildings. After a third school opened in 1909, the original school was no longer needed. Thus it was moved to the present site, stone by stone, at the University of Saskatchewan campus by the IODE (Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire). They donated it to the University in commemoration of the coronation of George V (with his wife, Queen Mary) as King and Emperor on June 22, 1911.
