Devonshire Racetrack – 1932

This old news photo was taken July 23, 1932 at Devonshire Racetrack. Back when horse racing was illegal in Michigan, people used to flock to the Windsor tracks to see live racing.

A neat view of the old clubhouse that fronted Howard Avenue.

Also visible in this old photo, along with the Detroit skyline, is the old Windsor Gas Works. The Gas Works were located on the spit of land bordered by Howard, between Grand Marais and the 3rd Concession.

To this day, Union Gas maintains some services at the site.

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