Ouellette & Chatham – 1920

0729

Today’s shot is looking at the southeast corner of Ouellette & Chatham in the spring of 1920. This shot shows the then newish Merchant’s Bank on the corner, with the former Ouellette House, that once stood on the corner, just to the east. A busy spring morning, with lots of pedestrians and the streetcar cruising into the frame. There sure were many grand buildings in Windsor’s past that have been lost over the years.
