Photo Du JourWindsor

Paulin Memorial

At my opening reception, I was speaking with Architect Doug Johnson, of Johnson-McWhinnie. He told me that of all the buildings in the show, I missed the one his was most proud of designing. He told me it was a chuch right off of Norfolk, between Dominion and Dougall, and that I couldn’t miss it.

Apparently I some how overlooked what is perhap the most striking Mid-Century Structure in the City of Windsor.

There is nothing else like this Church in Windsor that’s for sure. My apologies to Mr. Johnson, for failing to include it in the exhibition (and the book).
