Devonshire Racetrack Paddock

Today’s old photo comes again from the dumped collection of the Detroit News. This photo is dated January 27, 1923, but was clearly not taken in January. I think this is the same photo that once ran in the Windsor Star, although the photo has a photographers stamp in the bottom corner:

“E. Rogers
Day & Night Studio
25 Pitt St. E.
Windsor, Ont.”

I’m going to guess that Evan A. Rogers sold his photo from 1922 to both the Star and the News. 🙂

This photo reveals in the details a man hard at work either sprucing up or putting final touches on the stalls…

It was a nice looking building. A shame this one was lost too… I like the “D” in the roof. Nice architectural details.

Have a good weekend everyone. See you back here on Monday.
