Ford City – City Hall

Here’s a recent addition to the IM collection, this photo postcard of the Ford City, City Hall.

Situated on the corner of Riverside and Drouillard, in a space last occupied by the parking lot to Our Lady of the Rosary.

Over the peak of the roof, you can see the two massive domes on the towers at Our Lady of The Rosary to the east.

A nice detail shot of the front door – note the “FORD CITY” over the front door.

A close up of the horse and buggy to the rear parked along Drouillard Rd.
