1118 Drouillard Road – Follow Up

Last Friday we took a look at Brown’s at 1118 Drouillard, as some of the metal cladding had come away from the building.

Stephen Lynn, Community Development Coordinator of the Ford City Neighbourhood Renewal pointed me towards Chris & Elaine Week’s “500 Ways you know you’re from Windsor“, where the picture at the bottom of this post, of the Rex Hotel at 1118 Drouillard appears.

So for everyone curious about what’s under all that siding… See below.

Also if you’re looking for something to do Sunday, the Ford City Neighbourhood Renewal is hosting the 2nd Ford City Jane’s Walk this Sunday, go visit this historic area of town.

Event details are here: http://www.facebook.com/events/539645349420557/

Have good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.
