Construction at the University of Windsor, October, 1963 by weathermanandsewer

Editor’s Note: Of interestng to note here is that this photo was taken in the University of Windsor’s first year of official University status. On July 1, 1963, “the University of Windsor assumed control of the campus creating southwestern Ontario’s first autonomous degree granting institution” according to the University’s official history.

This photo looks east from the future location of MacDonald Hall at Dillon Hall (background), Essex Hall, and Cody Hall (left) which was demolished in 2012.
