Bishop Field College Class

St. John's

"The Church of England College"
One of the oldest schools in Canada

The three adults are: on the left Dr. Lloyd, centre Prof. Blackhall and on the right Riley[?] Polly[?] Barnes[?].

This photo was taken in 1893 by professional James Vey, possibly the first photo ever taken
of the masters and most of the 116 boys registered. The school at that time was named
"The Church of England College". Constructed in 1861, it was located on Colonial St.
The name was changed to "Bishop Feild College" in 1894. In 1928, it was
replaced by a new building on the same site, but facing Bond St. This
1928 school is still in use, but but now is coed & K to 6 only, and
is known as Bishop Feild Elementary. The original school was
founded in 1844 by Bishop Edward Feild (the 2nd Anglican
Bishop of Newfoundland), and was was
located on Forest Rd.
