Construction of the St. Thomas-Elgin Memorial Centre in St. Thomas, 1953. Looking south down Wilson Avenue (on the right) towards Elm Street. The Chesapeake & Ohio railyards take up much of the left hand side of the picture to the south of the Centre being built. The C&O eight-stall roundhouse (demolished in the 1980s) is the prominent building on the top left-hand side, behind the rail cars. Elmdale Public School is on the top right (now a Medical Centre, and across from Tim Horton's today). Beaver Lumber is also visible on Wilson Avenue (much of the company was destroyed by fire in June 1960). The photograph was likely taken from the roof of the Armouries.

History / Biographical
This school section, which is located in the northwest corner of the town-ship, was the home of the first white settler in Elgin County. In 1796 James Fleming settled on Lot 6, Concession 1 near the Thames River. However no other settlers came to this area until after the war of 1812 and it was not extensively settled until the 1840's. The first school was not built until 1852 when a small log building was erected on Lot 5, Concession 1, on what was commonly referred to as the "Martin Knoll". The first teacher of this small school was Mr. John McColl. In 1864 a larger school was built as a replacement on Lot 4, Concession 2. An impressive two-storey school was built in 1890 which came to be known as "Oak Grove" because of the many oak trees which surrounded the knoll it was built on. This school had two classrooms which were both continuously used except for a short period in the 1940's when only one classroom was needed. S.S. #10 was closed in June of 1965, after which the students were bused to the new Aldborough Public School.
