Boys and girls had separate entrances to Medicine Hat school

This historic Medicine Hat school is handsome and well-maintained. Below, close-ups of the two doors reveal how in the past there were separate entrances for boys and girls.


Reminded me of the "Ladies and Escorts" sign seen on a recent road trip.


These signs were still common in the fifties and sixties. The Men's Entrance led to the same room.

There's a vintage one hanging in Leo's Pub and Grill in Pincher Creek.
