Downtown Windsor – 1975

A few more today, from the Bob Baillargeon collection, again many thanks to Bob for sharing these photos with us. Hopefully Bob finds some more scans to share in the new year, these are some great photos.

The first shot from 1975 is looking north on Ouellette, the traffic light is at Riverside. I like the old Windsor Raceway sign on the right.

Another shot looking north, this one think is taken looking north from Wyandotte towards Maiden Lane (although google maps lists the alley from Wyandotte as Maiden Lane), and the old Tunnel Bus waiting room. All of these tunnel buildings bit the dust in the early 1990’s with the tunnel plaza expansion/remodelling.

I remember when I first came to Windsor taking the tunnel bus to Tigers games and coming out upon my return via Maiden Lane to Ouellette Ave.

Anyone else have any memories similar to that?
