Old City Hall – 1920

0629

Old City Hall taken in 1920. Formerly a public school it was repurposed and used as Windsor’s second City Hall, until replaced by the current one in 1956.

Now there’s a new one coming, and some discussion has come up about how much should be spent. What do you think? Should Windsor make an impressive City Hall, or should we cheap out and build something bland that will need to be replaced again in 40 or 50 years?

No post Wednesday due to the Holiday, we’ll be back on Friday. Have a safe an happy Canada Day everyone!
