The Ever-Ready Dress Stay Company

Today’s image comes from the Southwestern Ontario Image Archive, at the Univeristy of Windsor, another one of Windsor’s little known local history resources.

The image above of the Ever-Ready Dress Stay factory,is found on page 18, of the booklet: “Souvenir : Windsor and Walkerville, May, 1895 : Official Programme of Grand Military Demonstration, May 24th, 25th, and 26th, 1895. Published: Windsor, Ontario : E. J. Baxter, 1895.”, which is housed in the collection of the Leddy Library.

The building sat on the south west corner of Glengarry and Chatham Streets, and was listed as Vacant as of September 1937…
