Walkerville From Above – c. 1970

Happy Friday once again everyone. Today is an undated photo of the Walkerville Area from above. I’m guessing the date to be about 1970 or so. The old Train Station is gone, and the Waterfront Ford Plant # 1 is also gone. It was demolished in 1969. So I doubt that the picture is from much later than 1971 or 1972.

Lots of lost Windsor in this picture…

The old Fisher Body plant on St. Luke. Burned in a fire.

A big old factory (part of Studebaker?) on Walker. This was directly across the street from the Seagrave Building. Maybe someone will remember this place, and what happened to it. Today it is a vacant lot.

The old Walkerville Fire Hall on Richmond and Walker. Since replaced with a more modern station.

This house was on Kildare just south of Wyandotte. It was demolished in the late 1990’s to expand the parking lot for the funeral home.

This big old place was replaced with this:

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.
