Ouellette & University – July, 1958

Another old newspaper photo. Today’s shot is Ouellette and University Avenue, from July, 1958.

It’s interesting to see how much this block has changed over the years. The two buildings between the bank and the Kresge’s are now home to Chanoso’s and Oishii, and the Kresge Store has been replaced with a soulless, lifeless glass box Royal Bank building. Look at all the people out milling about, and shopping at stores where you can buy things…
