Windsor

Northern Electric Co.

Another building I’ve always found interesting is this one located on the south side of Wyandotte St. between Caron and Janette.

According to the 1937 Fire Insurance Map it was home to the Northern Electric Co. The 1923 Directory lists the Northern Electric Co. as being on Chatham St. West. So this building was built sometime in that 14 year window.

In recent years, I seem to remember it being home to Junior Achievement, wasn’t it? The last few years I recall seeing interesting displays in the windows. Anyone know what goes on there today?
