Windsor and Chatham


From the collection of the Windsor Municipal Archives

Today’s photo comes from the collection of the Windsor Municipal Archives. It shows the corner of Windsor & Chatham (looking east along Chatham) in the what I’m guessing to be the late 1940’s. Along Chatham, you can see Mossmans Fruit Market on the corner, with the Chatham Meat Market to the rear, and Hy’s Fish Market beyond that.

From the 1937 Fire Map, here’s a view of the block above.

It’s a shame that Windsor’s lost it’s urban density in the core.

The area today is under the new Caesar’s Coliseum.
