Downtown Windsor – 1959


Image from the collection of Scott Hughes

Regular reader Scott Hughes, sent along a great old postcard to share with readers. The card was issued in 1959 by The Greater Windsor Industrial Commission. Above is a crop of the card showing the north side of Wyandotte St. between Ouellette and Goyeau. The building on the corner under construction, is today’s TD Bank, and the only building still standing.

Here is a view of the whole card, a nice view of the central portion of Downtown Windsor. There have been so many changes to Windsor’s skyline in the last 50 years…

I thought I would take a stab at pointing them out. Everything in red is something that has been demolished since the photo was taken. I’m also willing to bet that I missed some, especially on the west side of the card.
Wow.

[EDIT] – Scott looked over my red splotches, and found a few I missed! So here’s the most up to date version.

Thanks again to Scott for sending it in!
