Lost Windsor

1706-1748 Wyandotte St E

The photo above shows the lost building at the corner of Windermere and Wyandotte in Walkerville. The tan building on the right had 6 addresses, 1706, 1718, 1726, 1730, 1736 & 1748 Wyandotte St E, with apartments above. I think it was 4 retail units, with two apartments.

The night of the big blackout August 14, 2003, a resident on the second floor had a candle lit for light, which ended up causing a fire that engulfed and destroyed the entire block. The building was demolished shortly after and has remained a vacant lot ever since.

The street scene photo was taken in 2001, while the second shot shows the morning after the blackout, August 15, 2003.
