Windsor Waterfront – 1939

Up today is a panoramic photo of the Windsor Waterfront, from 1939. At the left is the old Station, to the right are the tracks…

Here’s a close up of the old CN station…

As always there are always some interesting details in these old photos…. Looks like some repairs are being made to the tracks.

Note the planking to cross the tracks… Also interesting to note the D.T. & I. railroad car. That railway was owned by Henry Ford from 1920 – 1929, and at one time the stretch from Detroit to Toledo was electrified.

While the electrified line failed, to this day, some of the arches that carried the power lines are still standing, this shot above is just off of I-94 in Allen Park, MI.
