Norton Palmer Demolition – 1975

Today’s photo comes to us from regular reader Rick N., who shot this picture from his office at work back in the day.

The caption reads:

    “Smashing of the Norton Palmer from the 8th floor of the Security Building – Oct 21 / 75”

A neat shot, one that you don’t see very often. Such a shame that Windsor lost all its historic hotels. Thanks again to Rick for passing along this neat photo to share.
