My brother was out at the University the other day, and he managed to snap a few pictures of demolition of the former School of Dramatic art building.

The building used to front Wyandotte Street, right on the corner with Patricia.

As you can see in the photos demolition is well underway.

From the school’s website this history is found:

To make room for the expanding student body and programs, the School of Dramatic Art moved into its own building, a renovated grocery store, Loblaws, in 1972. The facility provided a movement studio, experimental theatre, a room specially designed for developmental drama classrooms, scenic design shops, faculty offices and a student lounge. The School of Dramatic Art was the first of its kind in Ontario within the framework of a university.

Hope everyone had a good weekend, and all the Dads out there had a good Father’s Day.
