Welcome to Lost Windsor.
A few years ago (back around 2003/2004) I kicked off a little web project called International Metropolis. It got pretty popular, and pretty big and for a while, it kind of took on a life of it’s own. It was a lot of work, and as it chugged along, life got busy too. I had less and less free time to spend on it, and eventually it was running well enough that it was kind of self sufficient. Then one day, a weak link in the software pops up, the site gets hacked, and essentially crippled. Over the last couple of years, the site has been kind of dormant, with a couple of failed attempts at repair, but the idea to bring it back, never went away.
So that brings us here to today (spring 2018). A new look, and a new name, but the same spirit brings us here.
There’s going to be more of what you always loved, as well as some new features.
Each post will have a corresponding map. The markers on the map will show where the building is, was, or was planned.
The legend is as follows:
Red markers signify the subject has been demolished
Blue markers signify the subject is still standing
Green markers signify the subject was proposed, but never built.
Also for purposes of this website, I have broken the city down in to multiple areas. Some traditional, some not, some with my own arbitrary boundaries.
The Core; Downtown; East Windsor; Ford City; Riverside; Sandwich; South Walkerville; South Windsor; University; Walkerville and West Windsor.
Enjoy your visit, I’m looking forward to years together. If you’re making your way back here, welcome back. If you’re new, welcome. If you have any questions, please use the contact form to get in touch.
