Pacific Park

From the Border Cities Star: May, 1925

The north end of Remington Park along South Pacific Ave was located a subdivision called Pacific Park. However unlike other subdivisions this is the first one I’ve come across that listed restrictions on who could buy there…

In 1925, this area was outside of the City of Windsor, being a part of Sandwich East. The ad states you had to be 21 and English speaking, which I found to be a bit of an odd requirement…

“…Come and Live with 100 per cent English speaking people…”

Who were they trying to keep out/exclude? Anyone have any insight into this discriminatory sub-division?
