Photo Du JourWindsor

Purity Dairy

I got an email last week from regular reader Ross, who asked about the old Purity Dairy Building at 1501 Howard Ave.

The old building has under gone many name changes over the years, but it was built in 1929 by local architects Shepard & Mason. The building was altered and added on to 1997.

Luckily the main focal point of the building, the main tower was left unaltered.

There is some interesting architectural sculpture above the windows on the lower floor of the tower.

Moo! Quite possibly the only animal architectural sculpture on any building in Windsor.

A look inside the windows of the tower reveals not much happening on the ground floor.

Any Windsorites have any memories of this place?
