Ontario.
Unlisted in the Bird Bear Press 1st Edition. (2013)
I'll pass on an image to Mr. Lafreniere,
and see if it is listed in later editions.

The school was demolished in 1967 and students relocated to the new Parkside Collegiate Institute.

Hi Don,
congratulations, found a previously unlisted item

Response from Bird Bear Press
(I have advised of your contribution, not mine)

Thanks for the image. It's the first one I see. I have seen another from St Thomas in this series, so I'm tentatively assigning the cat no. cc3010.10e (type 10 is from St Thomas, "e" is because it is located in the bottom centre of a likely pane of 6.
I'll include this in the 3rd (& likely final) edition of the Field Guide, aiming to publish in the Spring. It will be a monster book at 8.5 x 11 inches, and 4 cm thick. (that's about 900 pages).
Cheers,

Very kind Don, thank you.
I do collect Canadian Cinderellas.
I was wondering if Ron (Bird Bear Press) collects, or just prepares the Catalogue.
How would you think giving him first refusal?
With your approval, I can ask him.
If not I would gladly accept.

Thanks Don.

Me too, Greg,
no doubt it will be expensive, but well worth it
900 pages!
I use the first edition regularly, best Canadian Cinderella Catalogue ever. A tour de force.

Don & Rod:
Thanks for the St Thomas cinderella. A great addition. Here's an image of the other St Thomas cinderella in this series, which was issued around 1908.



These stamps were sold in general stores and pharmacies. The images were based on popular postcards of the particular cities. They were issued in panes of 6 stamps, and sold in booklets of 2 or 4 panes. Here's an example of two panes from Annapolis, NS:
