Photo Du JourWindsor

Walkerville – 1899 – Part III

Today is the thrid and final installment.

An interior view of one of the warehouses. This one claimed to hold 20,000 barrels

A view of the bottling line. Must have been comfortable to work all dressed up 🙂

A view of the train station (demolished), the Jubilee Fountain (erected in 1887, now in Willistead Park, moved in the 1950’s) and if you look closely you can see the ferry to Detroit at the right hand side of the photo.

A pair of street scenes. Most of the houses in the photos are still standing. Walkerville is truly one of the best preseved areas of Windsor.

I hope you enjoyed this trip to the past.
