Hotel Dieu – 1965

From the December 31, 1965 issue of the Windsor Star:

Hotel Dieu Hospital in the foreground has undergone a complete renovation in recent years at a cost of several million dollars. The newest phase to be complete is the Sisters’ residence and chapel shown in the left foreground, developed at a cost approaching the $1,000,000 mark. The background shows the Viscount Motor Hotel, fronting Ouellette Ave., where a $1,800,000 expansion to provide 125 additional motel rooms in the 18 storey tower is well under way along with decked parking facility and large meeting hall space. Bell Telephone, immediately to the left of the Viscount, is planning a major expansion to its service facilities. The view above looks south on Ouellette Ave., which is the main thoroughfare into downtown Windsor and to Detroit.
