Ouellette & Riverside – c. 1925

0626

A view here looking north towards the Detroit River along Ouellette from just south of today’s Riverside Drive. It’s always great to look at an image, from less than a century ago, of a pretty major intersection, and there not one single thing still standing.

There were some pretty impressive structures downtown at one time. I’ve always been a fan of the building on the north west corner. Built as the Merchant’s Bank, it later became the Ritz Hotel & Bar, before being demolished for Dieppe Park in the late 1950’s. Tough sometimes to even believe this is the same city.

Have a great weekend everyone, see you back here Monday!
