History Corner: Yorkton High School students - 1909-1910

The High School Students in this photo will be of interest to readers who seek information on ancestors whose parents were pioneers or early residents of Yorkton. Too many old photos don’t identify people, place or time, but this group photo has numbers to id the student. The surnames also reveal what nationalities were living in this community and immediate rural area which was included in the Yorkton School District. One can see that the population at the time was in great majority of Anglo-Saxon origins — the parents being originally from Ontario and the British Isles — founders of Yorkton beginning in 1882. 1.
