Assumption College – c. 1960

December 9, 2013

Once again Dillon Hall surfaces, this time on an old postcard from about 1960. A handsome building, this Albert Lothian designed school building has been featured on promotional materials and postcards since it was built. It really is one of Windsor’s iconic structures.

    What a university building should look like? Did that sidewalk go past St. Dennis Hall and then to the old barracks/residences that were behind Assumption Church? I played pee-wee football on a big empty field near those barracks.

    My wife and I had many classes there 1963-1966, the first years of U of W. We also skipped many classes there while courting!
    Lovely postcard; it looks just as it was back then.

    I’m glad they renovated it so it can still be used today.

    I had my business classes in this building fall of 76 and 77 before they moved them to the windowless Business building which I think is now the Education Faculty. I recall taking a finance lab on the third floor of Dillion Hall in the 3rd floor classroom with the Gothic Windows in the foreground. Morning sun would come thru the windows on the wooden floors and lite the room up. You thought you were in heaven. Made it tough to concentrate on the subject at hand. A fond memory.
