Walkerville – 1974

No real info on this one, just a date stamp on the back, which I suspect is not 100% accurate. The stamp reads “Dec. 13, 1974”, but given the trees in full foliage, it was obviously not take on that date, but is probably the printing date. Still a neat view of Walkerville as it once was.

A good shot of the old Neon Canadian Club sign.

A view of old industrial Walkerville – the older dark brick buildings in the foreground were part of the Studebaker Factory, while the long sprawling complex in the distance was the Fisher Body factory. Both buildings were destroyed in fires.

Enjoy the weekend, see you back here Monday.
