Ferry & Chatham – Alexander Bartlet House – 1912

From the Evening Record – October, 1912:

One by one, the old landmarks are disappearing, owing to Windsor’s phenomenal expansion. The engraving above is made from a photo of the late Alexander Bartlet home at the corner of Ferry and Chatham streets. Since Mr. Bartlet’s death it has been occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Braid. Recently the property was sold to Messrs. Duck and McGregor, who will build a handsome garage on this desirable site, and conduct the agency for the Ford autos for Essex and the counties of Kent and Lambton. Contractor A. A. Little is moving the old residence to another part of the city.

Happy Monday everyone! This house used to stand on the site where the Loop/Coach & Horses/FM Lounge building is today.

I wonder where the house was moved, and if it’s still standing today?
