The original photo came from the Waldren Studios, but it is possible that the actual photographer could have been either A.H. Rice or Waldren. This school opened in 1882 and the photo could have been taken sometime after that, judging from the clothing on the people and fact that the tree in the foreground was still quite young. Waldren bought out the Rice Studio and acquired their extensive collection of glass negatives in the 1890s. My dad notes in An Edwardian Walking Tour of New Glasgow, that Waldren's "collection of 25,000 negatives from the Victorian era gave him the edge in supplying illustrations for histories, booklets and in providing archival material for the use of local newspapers".
