Vintage Photos of Girton School For Girls in the 1910s

The Girton School for Girls was a boarding and day school for girls located in Winnetka, Illinois from 1901-1919. Eventually boys were admitted to the lower school. In 1919, the school was closed, and the campus became the new home of North Shore Country Day School. Many students continued on at North Shore.

These photos from the North Shore Country Day School Archives captured students of the Girton School for Girls during their performances in the 1910s.
