Ouellette Avenue – c. 1932

This postcard is a neat view of Ouellette Avenue looking south from just south of Chatham Street. Both the buildings you see on the south side of University are no longer around. On the left hand side was the old Heintzman Building, demolished with the old Palace in 1986, on the right hand side is the Labelle Building, designed by J.C. Pennington & C. Howard Crane. It burned down in a spectacular fire in the 1950’s.

The two buildings on the right in the foreground are now home to the Chanosos’ complex, and look at all that on street parking on the left… 🙂
