Downtown Windsor – c. 1959

The cover of an old postcard folder. The photo was from about 1959, as Cobo Arena is still under construction. It opened 1960. $0.39 cents for the folder, and a $0.05 cent stamp would get this a friend and would make a nice souvenir for less than $0.50.

Even the early 1960’s show lots of surface parking lots filled with cars. Even the location of today’s parking garage at Chatham & Goyeau was a surface lot.

Hope everyone had a good weekend!
