Hockey Night in Windsor

Last night I attended a Spitfires game with a friend of mine from the US side, at his suggestion. It had been about a decade since I last went to a game, and I figured it was a good chance to go shoot the old area before the Spits move out the the deep east side.

Built in 1924 as the Border Cities Arena, this building hosted the inagural season of the Detroit Red Wings (then called the Cougars), in 1926-27 as the Olympia wasn’t ready in time for the season.

In the end it was all for naught as the Kingston Frontenacs leave Windsor with an 8-5 win.
