Photo Du JourWindsor

Cock Brothers

While digging through my parents garage last night looking for something, I came across this old claim check nailed to the wall.

Do any old Windsorites have any memories of these guys? 340 Pitt St. E. no longer exists, it was plowed under for the Casino in the early 90’s.

A check of the 1937 Fire Map, shows 340 Pitt E. as being on the north side of the street. The building is listed as: “Flour & Feed Store” It was sandwiched in between Canadian Ice Refrigeration Co. to the west and Canada Fish Distributors to the east.

The yellow dot shows about where the building sat on a current aerial view.

This final view is an aerial shot from 1949 (from the Detroit Edison Archives @ Wayne State). The building is outlined in yellow.
