Exterior view of the front entrance to the Elgin County Court House, decorated with flags and ribbons. The Elgin County Court House on Wellington and Stanley Streets was constructed 1853-1854 and opened in 1854. It was partially destroyed by fire on July 1, 1898. Under the supervision of architect Neil Darrach the building was rebuilt and enlarged, reopening in December 1899. The cannons were added to the lawn in 1902. It still operates as a Court House. Note the date 1853 above the central window. Decorations may mark the 60th anniversary of Canadian Confederation in 1927: other prominent civic buildings in St. Thomas such as the post office were similarly decorated in 1927.

Black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published February 16, 1957 with caption: "A Flag For the Courtroom - A large silk Union Jack, 6 by 9 feet, together with a standard, was presented to the Elgin County Court on Monday morning by the Municipal Chapter, I.O.D.E., and was dedicated by Rev. H.S. Rodney, of Knox Presbyterian Church. The ceremony took place just prior to the opening of a citizenship court in which 90 persons took the oath of allegiance and received their certificates of citizenship. The presentation was made by Mrs. Robert Lark, regent of the Municipal Chapter, standing in centre foreground, to the clerk of the court, Ian D. Cameron, on bended knee, who then placed it in its standard to one side of the courtroom. It was brought into the room by the Municipal Chapter standard bearer, Mrs. Keith M. McGregor, standing at right. Rev. Rodney is seen in the foreground, left. Standing at the bench at the rear is Judge J.F. McMillan, right, and John Mackenzie, deputy clerk of the court. Subsequently, Judge McMillan spoke to the court on the significance of the flag as a symbol of national unity."
