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.
