Millers Point, Holy Trinity School

This heritage sandstone building was originally the Holy Trinity School, in the inner city suburb of Millers Point. A school was begun at this site in 1844 and this school house was built in 1850. It was last used as a primary day school in 1942 and is now used as the parish hall for The Garrison Church that I featured yesterday.

  2. What a lovely, little old school! And a great shot as always, Jim! I always enjoy learning more about your world -- our two countries speak the same language, but how different we are in many ways and I love it! Have a great week!

  14. Like the stained window, the bricks of the olden days were much bigger than these days.
