Mario’s Of Windsor – 1973

Happy Friday everyone, and Happy June! Sheesh, 2012 is almost half over already…

Today’s photo is dated April 12, 1973, and show’s Mario’s of Windsor, later Bentely’s at 755 Ouellette. My informations shows the building as being built in 1948, and was designed by Windsor architect G. A. McElroy.

A detail shot of the signs. Notice the sign for the Dentist in the second floor window.

A view of the front entrance. Does anyone remember when Mario’s closed? I’m pretty sure it was already Bentley’s by the time I came to Windsor in 1989.
