Windsor

Victoria School

Today’s post features a subject suggested by a reader, today we take a look at Victoria Public School.

Victoria Public School was opened in 1922, and designed by Windsor architect Albert McPhail.

While Victoria Avenue is named after Victoria Dougall, the daughter of James Dougall, an early Mayor and the man who gave our City the name “Windsor”, the school is according to the program from the opening, named after the Queen.

This school is in great shape, and is an oddity in Windsor, as the building is just covered in architectural sculpture.

A beautiful building, a work of art even, given the amount of sculptures on it.

I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend, and relaxing today. Back to work tomorrow 🙂
