A Dangerous Corner In Windsor

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.
