Goyeau & Elliott – 1945

The photo above was taken September 27, 1945. It was shot by the Detroit Bureau of the Acme Photo Co. It shows Goyeau at Elliott looking north.

The caption on the back reads as follows:

    WINDSOR, ONT. — Hundreds of Detroit drivers
    form long lines prior to making their way back
    through the Detroit-Windsor tunnel after standing
    in other long lines to fill their cars with gas.
    NY CHI CLE WASH 9/27/45

On the left hand side, you can see a nice shot of the G. Tate Easton dealership (a post about that building from 2008, can be found here)

Here’s the same view today.
