Lost WindsorWindsor

Wally’s Baits

The photos on today’s post were actually taken back in February 2005, but I noticed earlier this summer, and meant to post about it sooner than today, but the old neon sign is gone.

Any westsiders out there know anything about it? When was it removed?

The sign was a long time fixture on the streetscape and it looks bare without it (sorry I didn’t get a current photo). The building housing the store is listed on the Municipal Register (the Inventory of Historic Properties), and it states the building was built c. 1880.
