Viscount Hotel

Regular reader Darren was kind enough to send along this crop of an image that he took in the early 1980’s.

In it you can see the former Viscount Hotel (marked with a red dot). He apologized for the lousy quality, but any photo is better than none at all. So a big thanks to Darren for sending the photo.

Below find a scan from a mid 1960’s ad in the Windsor Star…

As you can see in the ad, the Viscount was located at 1150 Ouellette Ave. Today, 1150 is the site of a parking lot.

Located directly to the west of the Bell Building on Goyeau. Hands down the tallest building demolished in Windsor’s history.
