100th Anniversary Cake

This one has a caption on the back “The Cake on Ouellette Avenue”, and bears the date June 5, 1954.

Taken during the celebrations the first time Windsor celebrated a centennial in 1954. Once wasn’t enough, and they decided to do it again in 1992. The first one was the anniversary of Windsor’s founding. The second time was to celebrate the centennial of Windsor’s incorporation as a city. IMO the second one was just an excuse to have a celebration. So 2004, which was the 150th anniversary of Windsor’s founding, was completely ignored.

As always the details in the photos that catch a moment in time are my favourite parts.

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.
