Return To Routley’s

A little over a year ago, I featured an ad from Routley’s Motel from 1954.

I just recently picked up this postcard of Routley’s from eBay.

The back of the card reads:

Located on Highway 2 at Walker Rd., Windsor, Ontario – Ultramodern visitor accommodation at sensible prices. Ten minutes drive from downtown Windsor. Close to Airport, Golf Course, Beaches, Hotel, Fishing and Hunting Grounds. Restaurant and Gift Shop at your service. Meals at all hours. Snack Bar. First in friendliness and cleanliness.

Telephone, Windsor 2-1604

This is one of the buildings in the City I never got a photo of before it vanished, and I always wish I had. Photos of the Walker Road corridor from Division to Provincial from the early 1990’s would be interesting to see today…
