Sport Center Saturday - BCS and the Smiths

My grandfather, George Washington Smith, and at least two of his brothers attended Bishops College School in Lenoxville, Quebec as teenagers.

My grandfather's time there overlapped with his brother, Herbert Austin's, and because of his love of photography, we have a lovely collection of snapshots of both BCS and its sister school King's Hall Compton, where their sister Frances Ruth was a student.

Here are just a few, and I definitely recommend clicking on them for a more detailed view.
