Windsor Salt Mines – 1975


Photo © Bob Baillargeon

Taken in 1975, and from the Bob Baillargeon collection, many thanks to Bob for sharing photos with us. This photo is taken under the earth inside the Windsor Salt Mine.

Anyone out there ever been in the mines? Sounds like it would make a great Doors Open location too, although it today’s day and age of liability, it’s very hard to get places like this open…

I hear stories that once upon a time there used to be Salt Mine tours, open to the public and for school children, etc… Someone must have some stories to share.
