Amazingly the people who run the Runnymede Health Centre planned and succeeded in saving the original arch entryway. The old building was taken down for a much needed new building.
Robbing out the original arch from the building was a best possible choice. It not only saves a important architectural element of the built environment of the community, the effort also provides an avenue for a project to provide situational use remembrance of the site and it's storied history.
Now the arch sits stored at rear of the new building.
The 1st image is part of the arch still in place during the demolition.
