Airport Terminal Construction – 1956

From the Windsor Daily Star – July 30, 1956

    TERMINAL TAKING SHAPE – The new $615,000 Windsor Airport Terminal, which will include immigration, customs and quarantine facilities for international operations, is gradually taking form. Steel is up, most of the concrete floors poured, rough plumbing is going in and tinsmith work also is underway. Department of Transport officials hope the building will be completed this year. Eastern Construction has the contract. This view is taken from the airport side of the building and high above is the traffic control cab.

Have a great weekend everyone, and if your company gave you Monday off, enjoy the long weekend!

There will be no post Monday, but we’ll be back on Wednesday.
