     My 85-year-old first cousin once removed in Massachusetts has been sending me alot of photos he took on visits to Prince Edward Island in the late 1960's / early 1970's.  Here's an unidentified photo he just sent me - possibly in the Evangeline Region?

Bayview School House 1914

     I came across this image of the Bayview School House on Earles Picture Restoration PEI Facebook page https://scontent-lga3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/fr/cp0/e15/q65/18955051_642407189299075_6267121119158367607_o.jpg?efg=eyJpIjoidCJ9&oh=e8caff90f520f1cdb043753ad5129f5b&oe=59FB3AF5
     The school was located on the north side of Simpson's Mills on the Simpson Mill Road in Bayview (near to Cavendish).  Arnold Smith recalls accompanying his father George to deliver the winter's firewood here around 1961.  
     The school was closed in the early 1970's then bought by the Ellis family who moved it Cavendish behind the Cavendish Tourist Mart - the Ellis' built on an addition use it as a cottage today.
