Terrace House Demolition – 1959

Here’s a little picture I came across a while back, what a beauty this place was. Sad that it didn’t survive.

From The Windsor Star, April 15, 1959:

    ROOM FOR PARKING-Wreckers have started to demolish the old housing terrace at
    the southeast corner of Victoria Ave. and Chatham St W. This property has been
    owned for several years by Union Gas Co. and it is being cleared to provide more off-
    street parking. This move was made possible with the recent move of the gas com-
    pany offices into the former utilities offices on Chatham St. W., allowing the gas com-
    pany to vacate offices which were located in the old housing terrace.

Here is the site where the houses once stood. There was a bank on the corner, and then these row houses.

Over half a century later, it’s still a parking lot.
