Kingsville-On-The-Lake Part 1 – c. 1933

From a travel guide from the early 1930’s is this little trip out to Kingsville…

The write up on Kingsville is as follows:

    Kingsville is one of the most southerly towns in Canada. It is 28 miles south-east of Windsor over paved roads. There are fine bathing beaches in front of the town, at Cedar Island, and in Township Park, as well as at many other points along the waterfront. At the lake edge is a casino and dancing pavilion and also an outdoor dancing floor. In the park is a dancing pavilion. A beautiful 18 hole golf course welcomes visitors. Kingsville is also the site of a splendid summer hotel. There are splendid facilities for docking and anchorage of pleasure boats.

Jack Miner, famous bird lover and naturalist, with a Wild Canadian Goose which has sought refuge at his great bird sanctuary where these birds are banded on the leg. These bands have been returned from birds, shot thousands of miles from Kingsville.
