Road to Freedom and the Civil War – Photographer Tod Ainslie has been documenting the sites associated with the Underground Railroad and the abolition of slavery with a pinhole camera. Despite the lack of a presence of people, the sites remain, and through them the important stories of these people and the events that happened can be told.

The Windsor Spitfires in Jerseys – The current incarnation of the Windsor Spitfires hockey franchise began its first season in the Ontario Major Junior Hockey League (OMJHL) on September 25, 1975. Throughout their recent history, the Windsor Spitfires have undergone a number of changes to the style of jerseys they wear on the ice. This exhibit will showcase a small sample of jerseys the Spitfires have worn. Spitfire ephemera, photographs and textiles from the 1970s to 1990s will also be displayed.
