Erie & Parent – 1935

From the Border Cities Star – February 1, 1935:

    Spring must be right around the corner. The large steam shovel of the Keystone Contractors is seen above carrying out excavations at the northeast corner of Erie street and Parent avenue, in preparation for erection of two new stores. It is the first time a shovel has been thus employed in Windsor for several years, but may be indicative of renewed activity.

Who knew the building above was the first major commercial project in Windsor after the great depression? I’ve always liked this one, it’s got a good street presence.
