Happy Railroad Friday everyone. Continuing, as promised the series of rail related photos, today is a 2-for-1 special. A pair of photos looking at the Sandwich Street Bridge over the CPR tracks.
This photo is looking north towards the river. The building on the left is probably related to the old Windsor Salt Co., and a bit of the old CPR passenger station can been seen on the right.
Here’s a view from the road level, looking east. A nice view of the old CPR station
A postcard view of the station. In a past post, I attributed the station to architect, Edward Colonna and as being built in 1890, however I have also come across a listing crediting architect Bruce Price and lists it as being built in 1889. So dear reader, your guess is as good as mine as to who and when….
There is still a bridge there today, although the entire scene is much different today. If you are down on the riverfront trail, traces of the station still exist in the piers of the bridge above.
