3857 Riverside Dr E

0515

As someone mentioned recently in the comments, here’s another recent demolition. 3857 Riverside Dr E, between Strabane and George. It was most recently “The Windsor inn on the river” a B&B. It has had a standing demolition permit for the last several years. The owner took out a permit, it would expire, he would reapply, it would expire, etc.. Only this time it was actually demolished. There was a condition on the demolition that the fence be saved, and turned over to the city. The fence along Riverside Dr. originally surrounded the old post office that stood at Ouellette and Chatham and dates to the 1880’s. That Post office was demolished and was replaced by the Paul Martin Sr. Federal Building.

Have a great long weekend everyone! Due to the holiday there will be no post Monday. See you back here Wednesday next week. 🙂
