Metropolitan General Hosptial – 1968

Once again Friday is here! Today we have a new photo, but still a look back to Windsor’s Past. Today’s photo is date stamped August 13, 1968. It shows a nice, pre-renovation look at the original façade of Met Hospital.

Built in 1926, the original hospital section was designed by Pennignton & Boyde, and this original part has been completely obscured behind renovations over the years.

A detail shot of the parapet at the central part of the building.

The landscaped area above is today is covered by parking lots… Big surprise…
