Anyone out there remember anything about this place? There was a Maple Leaf Restaurant on Pelisser St. in the 1950’s, that served Chinese Food, but I’m not sure if there’s any relation. I wonder if there’s any relation between the place above and the current Maple Leaf on Tecumseh Road.
The caption on the back reads:

It’s too bad that neon sign didn’t survive. At one time, Windsor had quite the collection of signs at one time. It seems today only the Lazare’s Furs sign downtown and the Yorktown Plaza sign survive. Even the Firestone Building recently lost its lettering on the roof.
