Attending the College my Dad built

In 1966 my family came over from England, my father intending to get a job as an electrician at the new Ford plant. Instead he ended up working on Fanshawe College.

I remember taking a tour when it opened. My brother and I didn't want to leave the room that used photosensitive walls and a strobe light to leave an image of your shadow. The shadows didn't last, but Fanshawe has, and here I am, fifty years later, starting a new career in the school my dad built.
