School Uniform Buttons

Wenona School

An unusually high quality button for a school uniform., with a metal base and clear coating.











This secular girls school had its origin in 1886 as Woodstock School, becoming Wenona School in 1914. In 1922 it moved to its current North Shore location, and started offering boarding.
