Manning Hotel & Post Office – c. 1915

As is usual in old Windsor postcards, everything here is gone… A view looking east on Pitt Street towards Ouellette Avenue,with a streetcar rumbling past…

A good view here in front of the old post office, showing the old memorial fountain which was moved to Jackson Park when the old post office was demolished in 1929. Also interesting to note the old posts, that were also moved to Jackson Park. The two posts stood on either side of the driveway to the park.

I haven’t been to Jackson Park lately, the picture above is from last August. Anyone know if they were put back in place?
