Vintage CCVS School Swag

Our new exhibit of vintage school swag grew twice this week already.

Last week, his sister Marion, posted this photo of Rhys Roberts wearing his 1952-56 CCVS school jacket.

Subsequently, Rhys and his wife drove to Cornwall from their home in nearby Lorraine QC to donate the jacket for our collection.

When we mentioned needing a pair of CCVS gym shorts so that our new CC dummy would not be pantless, Jim Brownell, without hesitation, offered his brother Tom’s high school shorts that their mother had saved all of these years.

This is the view from behind.

As seen above, the evolving exhibit currently includes items from the Classical College, Cornwall Commercial College, CCVS (Cornwall High School), Central Public School (the Model School) and St Felix de Valois Catholic Girls’ Elementary School (which became Holy Cross Catholic Girls’ High School for a time).

With donated items from local families, we are proud to be able to share these with the larger community. What’s in your closet?
