Photo Du JourWindsor

1010 Wyandotte St. West

Another oldie, when up in smoke in early September. As is the case these days in this city, the burned out hulk of the four-plex sits derelict on the corner of Wyandotte St. W. at Oak St.

Looking back in some old directories, the houses early occupants are listed as:

1919 – William A. Loop (no occupation given)
1923 – William W. Kerr, of the firm Kane & Kerr, Real Estate
1924 – William W. Kerr, real estate must have failed, because he’s listed as a labourer at the Postum Cereal Company.

Back in the day this was probably quite a nice looking place.
