Ouellette Avenue 1970

Here’s an interesting photo. It was taken September 24, 1970 shortly after the opening of the Ouellette Avenue Mall.

The info on the back indicates the musicians are:

Pat Ciccone
Frank Ciccone
Angelo Russo
and the kid is Christopher Bennett – 2 yrs old

The photo is amazing, it’s neat to see a Windsor with the downtown streets packed. September 24th was a Thursday to boot.

What a difference actual stores make on the vibrancy of a downtown (and not a drop of stucco anywhere)!
