Riverview Apartments – 1948

Happy Friday once again! Up today is a picture of the Riverview Apartments, sadly without any kind of explanation about exactly what has happened here….

On the back is a stamp dated March 24 1948, and a caption that reads: “RIVERVIEW APTS 951 SANDWICH ST WINDSOR” but nothing else…

A storm? An explosion? I see a fire escape twisted on the ground, may the wall just gave away? No idea.

However if you look at the Riverview today, you’ll notice that the top floor of the façade appears to have been repaired with a slightly different coloured brick.

Any ideas out there about this one?
