St. Edmond

A pair of old downtown area postcards for today.

First up is St. Edmond School. It was located on Tuscarora Ave. just east of Marentette, behind what was then Immaculate Conception Church, in fact, you can catch a glimpse of the church on the left side fo the card.

I’m not sure when the school closed, when I first moved to Windsor in 1989, I seem to remember some new kids in school that had just come from St. Edmond. I’m not sure however if it was the same building or not.

Immaculate Conception is shown in the postcard above, the church is at Wyandotte and Marentette, and is today The Holy Family Chaldean Church. Thank god for the ethnic church groups otherwise Windsor could have lost a lot of great old churches. The Chaldeans saved this building, the Coptics saved Sacred Heart on Ottawa St., and the Maronites saved the Art Deco Gem St. Claire’s on Tecumseh & Victoria.
