Levi Carroll and Family


A now iconic photo taken by an unknown photographer sometime after 1874 when Berlin High School was built (today it is known as KCI or Kitchener Collegiate Institute) and before 1893-4 when the log house was moved to Waterloo Park. We can see Berlin High School towering in the distance behind the former log schoolhouse. Levi Carroll and his family sit in front of the house.

More than likely, this photo was taken sometime in the 1880's as the 1881 Canadian Census lists Levi's family members and among them is a five year old boy, Bismark. A small boy is visible on the right hand side of the photo.
