Essex CountyPostcards

Talbot Street – Essex

Off for the first time in a long time out into Essex County… Today’s postcard features a view from the late 1970’s? I’m sure someone can date it by looking at the cars.

The caption on the back reads:

    TALBOT STREET,
    ESSEX, ONTARIO.

Seeing as this is not Windsor, it was easy enough to match up the location in the postcard to today… 😉
