Glossy black and white aerial photograph of St. Peter's Seminary. The Thames River can be seen in the background.
St. Peter's Seminary was designed by John R. Boyde and built in the collegiate Gothic style in "Sunshine Park" in north London, 1925-1926. The exterior walls are of quarry run Credit Valley stone in various colors with cut stone trimmings of Tyndall stone. The roofs are of copper and sea green slate. The cloister was added in 1929 and the chapel in 1930.

St. Peter's Seminary, founded by Bishop Fallon, opened September 15, 1912. The students were housed in the Bishop's Palace, which later became St. Peter's Cathedral Rectory, until the present Seminary building was opened on September 29, 1926.

The photographer's name is written beneath the photograph in the bottom right hand corner. A guess has been made that this photograph was taken ca. 1940.
