Ouellette Avenue – 1965

Happy Friday the 13th! Today’s old photo is dated March 23, 1965 and bears a Detroit Free Press stamp on the back.

The caption reads:

    Windsor Mayor John Wheelton is beaming
    these days as he looks over his bustling town.
    There is $25 million worth of building going on …
    things like a 500-car parking ramp, for a Downtown
    urban renewal project, being started inthe top pic- (caption cuts off)

Here’s Ouellette, north of Wyandotte, on the west side of the street. Look at how packed it was.

Here’s the east side.

What a booming place.

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