The photo above ran in The Border Cities Star – July 7, 1928:
- This corner, the intersection of Pitt and Ferry streets, is one ot the most dangerous for
pedestrian and wheel traffic in the city. The photograph is taken facing north on Ferry, from beside The Border
Cities Star building. In addition to being the southbound route from the Detroit ferry, it ls complicated by the
street cars which make a ternnnal loop in the square bounded by Ouellette, Sandwich, Ferry and Pitt streets.
Moreover, although Ferry street is one-way from the ferry to Pitt and all wheel traffic is supposed to stop at
the Pitt street intersection, a great many American tourists disregard the stop sign. This intersection is a mighty
good place for pedestrian and motorist to look out for trouble.
The Windsor Star offices, visible on the left, is the only thing that is still standing today.
