Old PhotographsPhoto Du JourWindsor

Long Gone

This house was located on the corner of Church and Vera, one block north of Wyandotte St.

I was reminded of this house the other day when I drove down Church St. past the now vacant lot, and stumbled across this photo the other day while looking for a photo of the Nisbet Inn.

I took this photo in late 2001. The house despite being chopped up into four or five apartments, still retained elements of its once glorious past. Sadly a few years back (maybe around 2004/2005?) the place went up in flames, and today it’s just another vacant lot in the core.
