Diane Shoes – 1939

From the Windsor Daily Star – December 30, 1939:

    After alterations are completed the new greater Diane Shoe Store will be located on Ouellette avenue in the present building. The new store will have three times its former floor space, with the first floor, basement and mezzanine shoe departments. It will be the only air-conditioned shoe store in Windsor and one of the most beautiful in the United States or Canada. The Weingarden brothers, who operate the Diane Shoe Stores, have been in business for the past 25 years, but the name Weingarden can be carried back to 44 years of shoe retailing in Windsor. The present Diane Shoe Store on Ouellette avenue will be closed on January 15 and reopen March 1. Temporary location will be 515 Ouellette avenue (the store formerly occupied by Baker’s Shoes)

Looks like they’re still around, although now located on Ottawa Street. Based on the article above, the business of Diane Shoes was started in 1914, that make it 99 years old this year…
