Years ago, while out shooting photos with John Stefani, we stumbled across a old cinder block building in an alley. It always seemed strange that the building was located in an alley and not on a road, but a recent discovery of an ad for the company, revealed that the alley was in fact once a road.
Parent Place, appears to have been little more than a glorified alley. Stretching two blocks north from Wyandotte, the old chimney (now demolished – but visible in the aerial photo) must have belonged to a Parent Place Business.
The 1923 directory lists three residential properties as being located on Parent Place.
Parent Place is marked on the photo, while the orange outline marks the location of the Windsor Bedding Company.
These photographs of the Windsor Bedding Company Building were shot in the fall of 2003.
The building was for sale at the time.
And it was demolished shortly after in early 2004.
