Return to Riverside & Ouellette

Last Thursday, we visited the corner of Riverside and Ouellette in 1920…

I recently came across this photo from 1913, showing the same corner and the Bank of Commerce that was on site before Albert Kahn’s building featured on Thursday.

I’m not sure when this building was built, but even if it was brand new in 1913, that means there has been a CIBC bank branch on that corner for at least 96 years. This branch is probably the longest serving downtown business, still operating in the same location.
