Windsor From Above – 1930

As we head into the long weekend, today’s photo comes again from the Detroit News archives, this one was shot on a hazy July 12, 1930

There are some amazing parts of Windsor captured in this 80 year old photo. A nice view of Downtown Detroit is also visible in this shot.

Visible here is the old Patterson C.I. at Elliott and Goyeau, to the right of Patterson is the Albert Kahn designed Burroughs Adding Machine factory at McDougall & Elliott. Today all that empty space is developed.

I found this interesting… The Tunnel is still a work in progress. The Tunnel was opened November 1, 1930, 3 1/2 months after this photo was taken.

Lastly, the shot shows the Post Cereal Factory, traces of this complex are still standing today. The road lined with trees to the right, is Crawford Avenue.

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