St. Dennis Hall

This postcard was postmarked 1978 (not that means anything).

The caption reads:

Entrance
ST. DENNIS HALL
Gymnasium
UNIVERSITY OF WINDSOR

Seeing as this is St. Dennis Hall, a gymnasium, and the current St. Dennis Centre located on College Ave. contains a Gym. I’m guessing this was the forerunner? It’s hard to place it, but that looks like the Assumption College building in the rear, so this should be looking west, with Huron Church not far to the rear?

I must admit, I’m not all that familiar with the University of Windsor campus, but I’m assuming this place is long gone right? Likely replaced once the current St. Dennis Centre opened?

Hopefully someone can chime in…

Also thanks for all the feedback on the canals yesterday. It’s nice to know what others think.
