Long Gone…

Today’s post is proof that not every building lost downtown was a gem. Here are a pair of old postcards that show a couple of old Windsor landmarks that were lost in the 1990’s.

The plywood palace. The waterfront Holiday inn. It was vacant, and scheduled for demolition when a mysterious fire broke out and the place burned to the ground in 1999.

Another beauty was the former Art Gallery of Windsor. It was a converted Brewery, that was also the temporary home of Casino Windsor. It was demolished around 1996-1997, and the new Art Gallery of Windsor rose in its place.
