Windsor

Old Fina Station

While the news that the Yorktown Plaza made the register of historic places in Windsor was on the front page, the news of the other buildings being added were less sexy, like the former FINA station at Tecumseh & Bruce (For the previous discussion of this place, you want this post from Feb. 2007) .

There was some discussion of if the building is worthy of inclusion or not at the heritage committee meeting, but it is a unique design, and of the hundreds that were built, this is one of the few that is almost in original condition.

While going through some various photos of mine, I came across this photo of an old FINA station in Listowell, Ontario. It hasn’t fared as well.

Historic? Maybe not today, but how about in 30 or 40 years when we’ll all be telling our grandchildren about how cars used to run on gas….
