Dresser Electric

Another long lost Windsor manufacturer is up today, listed in this 1965 advertisement as “Canada’s fastest growing manufacturer of electrical products”.

Just another sad reminder of how far Windsor’s might has fallen.

The Dresser Electric building is still standing on Walker Road, just north of Big Tony’s. Designed by Johnson – McWhinnie in 1954, the building sits shabby and sad looking on a dreary stretch of Walker.

Another bit of Windsor’s past that doesn’t give hints to its important past as a manufacturing centre.
