Sometimes you just happen to be at the right place at the right time.  Such was the case today (April 16, 2008) as I happened by the demolition of Chebucto Road School's Old Bungalow.

 

Chebucto Road School opened in 1910.  This was a rapidly growing area of the city at the time and overcrowding soon became a problem.  To address this, in 1923, a brick bungalow was built on the North side of the main building.  In their history of the school, Bev Hendsbee and Carol Grantham wrote:

 

In 1923, a brick bungalow was built which had four classrooms, teachers' room, cement basement, a furnace room, and boys' and girls' lavatories.  It also had a semi-peaked roof with a large skylight over a small meeting hall that was in the center of the building.  This bungalow is located on the north side of the main building but is in no way attached to it except for telephone and power lines.  This bungalow was first known as the "Little Bungalow" but in later years became the "Old Bungalow".
