Ouellette Avenue – Early 1950’s

Car experts, I need your help again on this postcard. Maybe you can help me come up with a date, by ID’ing some of those old cars, parked curbside.

    OUELLETTE AVE., WINDSOR, CANADA

A great shot of the Palace Marquee, something starring Marylin Monroe is playing… Look at the crowd of people out on the sidewalks…

A view up the west side of Ouellette, many storefronts with Neon signs out front.

These old post cards of Ouellette at the height of its dominance as a retail centre are sad too see. Decades of poor planing and lousy zoning have brought us to the point where we are today. Heck even the Freedom Festival is packin’ up and heading out to the edge of town. Construction or not… That’s lousy.
