Ottawa Street & Langlois – 1940’s

Happy Friday, once again, we’ve got an old Windsor Photo to look at. This old shot was taken by Sid Lloyd, Windsor’s pre-eminent commercial photographer of the 1930’s, 1940’s and 1950’s. Each and every one of his photographs were works of art. The man had an amazing eye. Today we’re casting a glance towards the corner of Ottawa and Langlois.

A gas station is still located on that corner 70 years later…

It’s the small details that always catch my eye, like this old car marked “Sefton Art Studio – 150 Pitt St. W.”

Just beyond the Bank of Commerce Sign, you’ll see Copeland’s Bookstore. When the store closed for good in the early 1990’s it was Windsor’s oldest business dating back to the 1870’s or 1880’s…

Have a safe long weekend everyone. See you back here on the holiday Monday.
