Petrolia Business College
                                  
 Here is a great group of pics from ca.1944-45 that I picked up at a local Flea Market. This was a large group of over 100 pics. I passed these pics off to Jean Bradshaw to get names and we both noticed Mrs Colleen Bradley in some of them. Thanks to Colleen we have the rare names to a group of Petrolia pics.Please enjoy this grouping not only for the beautiful Petrolia girls that you may know, but the sites such as the Peggy Shop, Sherrins  and other old town landmarks. The Petrolia Business College operated for only a few years .
