Patterson Collegiate Institute

A few shots of Windsor’s first secondary school. Located on Goyeau and Elliot, directly across the street from where today you will find the Central Fire Hall. The site today is unsurprisingly a parking lot.

The photo above was taken around 1920, while below is a postcard view from around the same era.

The school was built in 1880, and designed by local architect James G McLean. A few of McLean’s residential works still stand in Walkerville, along with the old S.W. & A streetcar barns on University & Wellington. To the rear of the building a more modern wing known as the “Annex” was built in 1917, that section of the school was designed by J.C. Patterson. The school was closed in 1973, and the building was demolished in 1979.
