GM Transmission Plant

A few aerial photos of the Kildare Road factory prior to the giant renovation in 1982.

In these old photos you can clearly see the separate buildings. The building on the far right served for many years (1950’s though 1980’s) as Transit Windsor’s Kildare Road garage.

Old saw tooth roofed buildings, along with the old water tower.

After the expansion and renovation… The same as it looks today.

My favourite shot from the batch is this one of the old office building on the east west
(d’oh!) side of Walker at Seminole. Too bad that one didn’t make it.

Have a safe Civic Holiday weekend everyone. See you back here Monday.
