Today’s post kicks off a new feature as I am proud to unveil a new category, The Bob Baillargeon collection. Bob who’s now a Windsor ex-pat, grew up down here, and spent many years as a photo journalist. Bob has been slowly going though his vast photographic collection, and has recently been spending some quality time with his scanner. These photos were shot in the Winter of 1974-1975.

Today, Bob sends along a few photos of St. Mary’s Academy to add to the collection.
