Photo Du JourWindsor

Then and Now – Drouillard Road

Above is a shot looking north on Drouillard from Wyandotte St., during the Ford Blockade of 1945. Sadly everything north of the Windsor Co-operative Bakery has been demolished.

The stairs are now fenced in and filled in with concrete. The entire Drouillard Road Subway is due to be refurbished and repaired in 2007.

Even the Windsor Co-operative Bakery still stands. The entire building is now all residential, but it’s still there. If buildings could talk, I bet that one could tell some stories…
