Welcome To Windsor – 1957

Another old Newspaper photo, this one today is dated March 8, 1957.

It’s from the Detroit News, and the caption on the back, reads as follows:

On King’s Highway #2 showing the many clubs of the city.

According to the notes on the back of the photo, it ran in the March 27, 1957 issue on the “pix page”.

Looking at some of the clubs and where they met. Most are long demolished or have changed names. The Norton Palmer and Prince Edward hotels both long ago met the wreckers ball… The Elmwood is now Brentwood, and the Majestic Restaurant where Civitan International met, is better known today as Tops on Ottawa Street.

Have a safe weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.
