Downtown Windsor – c. 1925

A neat old picture. A stamp on the back reads

    “Please credit this photo
    Canadian Pacific Railway”

No other information. The photo can be no younger than 1920 as the Imperial Bank is the corner of University & Ouellette. It can be no older than 1930, as the old Post Office is still there.

Speaking of the bank, check out this scene. A neat News stand, as well as the streetcar and traffic cop. 🙂

Here is the back end of the Armouries before the expansion of the mid 1930’s. What a neat design the back end had. I don’t think I have ever seen a photo of this end before… *EDIT* This is the building on the north side of University Ave. where the former Greyhound Station is today.

Have a good weekend everyone, I hope our US readers had a good Thanksgiving yesterday!

PS -> Don’t forget to get your copy of the calendar… 🙂
