Red Cross – 1226 Ouellette Avenue – 1949

This building was located at 1226 Ouellette, just south of Gilles, and was for years the local Red Cross building. It was designed by local architects Sheppard & Masson, and was built in 1949, and it opened in May, 1950.

For the life of me I don’t remember this place. I’m assuming that it was closed about the time the one on Plymouth & Grand Marais opened? Does anyone remember when it was demolished?

Sorry for the lousy picture, it’s the only one I’ve ever come across…

Interestingly the vacant lot where it once stood, still has a sidewalk that must have went up to the building…
