  1. Good overview of a bygone era building.
    I’m sure future generations will appreciate your documentation even more .
    Stay well .

    Thanks Rick. That’s my goal — preserve these places for the future generations so they can see “what once was”.


  3. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

    Thanks for this! My Dad went to Readymade School. He often told stories of his time there, so it was nice to see the place, even is disrepair. My grandfather was the caretaker at the school. They lived on the property.

    While not not sure about the whereabouts of the other signs or if they were saved, the one with the flags is actually displayed in the new hall. I believe the old gym flooring was also reused in the hall as well as some of the light fixtures.

      Hi Jaynee. I’m glad to hear that. There are many of these items that could be reused if the effort is made. Maybe one day I’ll get the chance to visit the new hall.

    Nice to see the old school. My dad and my aunts before me, and myself went to school at Readymade. I was probably the most unpopular person there and I do not know why. I thought I was just like everyone else. Good memories, and yet, so sad.
    Thanks, schoolmates
