Throwback Thursday

This week’s Throwback Thursday Pic is a continuation of our Back-to-School theme. This photograph dates circa 1896 and is the interior of a laboratory classroom at Windsor Collegiate Institute (later renamed Patterson Collegiate Institute). The school located at the southeast corner of Goyeau and Elliott Streets was Windsor oldest high school having closed in 1973. The building was demolished in 1979 to make way for a parking lot of a grocery store.
