American Legion Parade – Goyeau & Park – 1931

The caption on the back indicates it was taken for the short lived Detroit Mirror. It is dated September 24, 1931.

    Reports state that out of the 125,000 Legionnaires who registered
    at the convention this year, 30,000 of them established temporary
    residence in Windsor where they could enjoy all the privileges of a
    Canadian citizen — and they did! With the convention drawing to
    a close, they decided to throw a parade for the Windsorites as a
    demonstration of their appreciation for one grand time. Pix shows
    parade as it passed down on the main streets of Windsor.

The picture was taken from the roof of St Alphonsus Church and looking north east. The old Police Station is visible on the right.

A neat view of the old Checker Service Station on the north east corner of Park and Goyeau, where the travel information centre sits today.

Have a good weekend everyone! See you back here Monday.
