Photo Du JourWindsor

Steinberg’s

Another email I got last week was from reader Pete, who was wondering if I had anything on the old Steinberg’s downtown.

This photo above comes from the book “Windsor 1892-1992 – A centennial celebration” , by Trevor Price and Larry Kulisek. The caption to the photo from the book noted that the building at the time had stood vacant for over 20 years.

The three architectural drawings for the Steinberg Miracle Mart were on display at my show at the Art Gallery of Windsor last fall. They were dug up by curator James Patten, from the City of Windsor Planning Department archives at City Hall with the help of Jim Yanchula.

Maybe there are some readers out there with some memories of the place?
