2011 – The Year In Review

Well we’ve made it through another year…

Seems like a large number of demolitions this year… Parkway demolition continued in full force, so there are probably some demolitions I missed, if so as always, add ’em in the comments.

Here’s what I came up with, in no particular order at all….

This old manor at the corner of Aylmer and Riverside.

Fred’s Farm Fresh on Huron Church (currently rebuilding at a new site)

The Deluxe Apartments at Monmouth and Ontario in Walkerville

The Ernest Wilby House on Ouellette Avenue

The Riverside Arena on Wyandotte St. E.

The Ada C. Richards School on Ontario near Pilette Road

The Whiski Jack Tavern on Drouillard Road

This old house/car rental office on Tecumseh Rd E.

This old commercial building on Glengarry and University.

This house on Glengarry

This house, right next door on Glengarry

This commercial block on Ouellette Avenue, just south of Park Street

Last but not least… The old Public Health Lab on Huron Church

All the places above bit the dust in 2011.


Have a safe and Happy New Year everyone!

Posting will resume Wednesday January 4, 2012.
