Colonel Bishop

Off to Lasalle today Windsor’s western suburb, where the decision had recently been made to demolished the former Colonel Bishop School.

The former school today serves as a community center, and the land will become a park, once the school is demolished.

An article in the Windsor Star claimed the building is 63 years old, not ever having seen the building before, I decided to cruise by and shoot it before it is lost forever.

According to the dates given by the Star, the building would have been built in 1944-45. However it looks much older to me.

It looks like it has a Deco influence.

It’s good to see that history is important to the almighty suburbs too…
