Imperial Bank – Walkerville

Happy Friday everyone! Another week gone, and we’re more than halfway through February too!

Up today is one of my favourite photos that I’ve come across. Dated June 1, 1934, the caption on the back reads:

    “Bank at Walkerville Ontario across river from Detroit”

I love the street life captured in this photo. A real moment in time captured.

Here is the bank building today. Still standing on the n.w. corner of Wyandotte and Lincoln. The bank was built as an Imperial Bank in 1927, and was designed by Toronto Architects Langley & Howland. Unlike many older buildings along Wyandotte, this one has made out pretty well over the years.
