I read with interest your "Looking back on 100 years of Charleswood."
In 1950-51, I taught at Chapman School. The enrolment was so large the gym was divided into two classrooms, with Mrs. Cantelon in one and me in the other. Needless to say, when we had music to my accordion we did it together.
Maybe some of this is of interest…
In 1982, I published Gladys A. Bunn: Pioneer Piano Teacher and Artist, an interesting biography. It can be found online being sold by private booksellers, or at the Charleswood Library and Charleswood Historical Museum, 5006 Roblin Blvd.
Len and Verna Van Roon were her special friends. Gladys A. Bunn’s oil painting, St. Charles Ferry, was purchased by the Charleswood Historical Society and hung in the Charleswood Historical Museum.
The accompanying photo of Gladys with councillor Jim Moore was taken on March 24, 1981, the day my book came out.
Councillor Moore told her a little park on Haney Street was named after her.
