Principals in romance

The April 17 1928 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained a photograph of a principal and a kindergarten teacher who had gotten married:


Out of curiosity, I traced Mr. Watson in the Toronto city directories (the directories only list heads of households, so I couldn’t trace her). He and his wife didn’t live on Glenholme Avenue very long – he is listed in the 1928 directory as rooming on Atlas Avenue, I couldn’t find him in the 1929 directory at all, and the 1930 directory lists a J. R. Watson working as a teacher at Humewood School and living on Winona Drive.

He is listed as either a teacher or a principal at Humewood School until 1939, moving at least twice more. I couldn’t find him or his wife after that; I assume that they moved out of the city. Humewood School still exists.
