Windsor

1292 1478 Wyandotte St. E.

Another building that falls under the category of places you drive past a million times…

Today, this building is home to Omeed’s Used Furniture, I remember it was for many years in my youth home to an H&R Block office.

A look back through the 1923-24 City Directory lists the following as being located at this location:

A. Minto & Company
Teas, Coffees, Crockery, Glassware & Fancy China, direct importations from Japan, Great Britain, France and United States.

Phone Burnside 48

I’m not sure how old the building is, but it looks to be of the early to mid 1920’s vintage.

I’m sure there have been a great many businesses located in those walls over the last 85 or so years. Just one of the hundreds of the commercial buildings lining Wyandotte St. from west to east. If buildings could talk, I’m sure many of them would have interesting stories to spin about watching Windsor evolve over the years…
