Canadian Bridge Company Offices – 1911

Back in April of 2009, we had a two part look at the Canadian Bridge Company in Walkerville [Part I here, Part II here].The photo above ran in the June 28, 1911 issue of The American Architect.

The caption reads:

    SCHOOL BUILDING, WALKERVILLE, ONT., CANADA
    Albert Kahn, Architect; Ernest Wilby, Associate

The building does look very school-ish, so I could see how the editors could have mistaken it. However the only school in Walkerville at the time was King Edward, also designed by Albert Kahn, so an editor somewhere was likely reviewing the photographer’s notes, and figured this to be the school? Who knows. An amazing building all the same, and if you click the links above, you can see how it was expanded upwards in 1913.
