Prince of Wales – Part 2

Today we head up to the top floor…

At the top of the stairs in the west staircase. For David’s benefit, note there is some water damage around the window frames.

Looking out the windows over a sea of surface lots. This is the 1927 expansion.

A view of the classroom in the 1927 wing.

The rough wall tiles are visible behind where the chalkboards once stood.

A view down the hallway, note the vaulted ceilings.

Little lockers… Looking back towards the west stairs.

Another classroom.

This room features a different kind of windows from the other one…

This room was in the 1926 wing (from what I recall). Note that the original exterior wall from the 1918 (maybe 1921?) building was revealed behind the chalkboard.

Again for David’s benefit, this is the room at the top of the tower. The ceiling is caved in, and floor was too spongy to safely walk around in.

One of the restrooms on the top floor.

Tomorrow we head to the basement…
