Ouellette & Chatham – 1913

1002a

A great postcard, looking north on Ouellette towards Chatham. On the left is the Victoria Building that burnt to the ground in the 1940s. Beyond that the old Post Office demolished and replaced by the Paul Martin Building.

1002b

One of my favourite parts of this card, is the east side of Ouellette. It’s so sparse, it almost looks like it could be a small town out in the county somewhere…

 

Have a great weekend everyone! See you back here next week.
