Wyandotte & Devonshire

Today’s picture comes to us from the John Stefani collection. A view from about 1908, looking west along Wyandotte Street from the intersection with Devonshire.

The building on the right is the Strathcona Building, designed by Albert Kahn and built in 1907.

The Strathcona Building is still there, but the streetcar is long gone. Unlike most of Windsor’s older urban arterial roads, there is still a touch of tree cover here. Not like there was a century ago, but a little bit all the same.

Last day of February, let’s get on with spring!
