Francois Baby House – 1956

Happy Friday everyone! Time again for another look back at Windsor through some old photos…

Today’s photo was snapped August 10, 1956.

The Baby house must have been freshly renovated, as there is no lawn, no shutters on the windows and the door is exposed to the elements.

Contrast the picture above with this postcard from a year or two later.

Here’s the same view today, the house is boxed in by the Cleary and the other riverfront Hotels.

I wonder when and why the chimney’s disappeared? It kind of looks dumb without them, compared to the photos from the 1950’s…

The Baby House is just one of the 24 sites that will be featured on Doors Open this year, Sunday, September 26. They have said that they will be giving tours through their vaults, and a chance to see some artifacts that rarely make it to display due to a severe lack of space. Mark it on your calendar!

Have a good weekend, see you back here Monday.
