33 Wyandotte Street East – 1948

We looked at the Syrian Coffee Shop back in April, today’s photo is from the same series.

This one is dated February 29, 1948, the caption on the back simply reads:

    33 Wyandotte Windsor – Gambling

The series is an interesting snapshot in time of the commerical store fronts around Windsor. The Roxy Billiards hall was located in the Douglas Building, long demolished, like the Syrian Coffee House.

Above is a layout of the old Douglas Building. 33 is the second last store front.

Above is a picture of the Douglas Building from November 12, 1927

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.
