School System In Toronto in the 1940's

This is a photo of me and my mother in 1942, standing in front of Niagara Street School on the corner of Niagara and Adelaide Street in Toronto.  My mother eventually tires to register me at that school since she felt the school being directly across the road from our home it would be a safe journey to and from school.  All my family were Chatholics and paid seperate school taxes so therefore they would not allow me to attend a Public School which Naiagara Street school was. Therefore when the time came for me to go to school  I went up Adelaide towards Bathurst Street were I attended St.Mary's Catholic School. The school had the girls on one side and the boys on the other even in the playgrouns at recess and for the longest time I thought that was why they called it a seperate school.We were taught by nuns the Sister's of St. Joseph. I think my mother was gorgeous and always smartly dressed dispite the low income we had.
