Graham Paige Dealership

This was a building I was always fond of. It was built in 1928, designed by architects Cameron & Ralston, and was located at 722 Wyandotte Street East. It was built for J. M. Blaine as a Graham-Paige dealership. It’s hard to tell from the older photo, but it had Moorish/Art-Deco influenced brickwork and a stucco plaster finish on the facade. A large garage was located at the rear of the building.

Sadly a fire in the garage portion broke out in 2007 and spread through the building destroying it. Shortly after the fire the entire building was demolished, and it remains today a vacant lot.
