North Lethbridge and 100 Years of Education

Galbraith School: North LethbridgeWhat is it about certain brick buildings that is so entirely comforting and compelling? Craftsmanship. Permanence. History. A story to tell …

Galbraith Elementary School, located at 1801 8th Avenue A North, is celebrating its 100th year of education in Lethbridge School District #51. Alberta was all of eight years old when this school was born. Wow.

All these years in Lethbridge and I only ever caught a glimpse of this stately beauty from the window of my car while driving down 9th Avenue North. I’m glad I took a detour this time and captured the image below.
