Ford Motor Company of Canada – 1914

Today’s old photo comes from the Detroit Publishing Co. collection housed by the Library of Congress. The caption calls it June 4, 1914, but given that ice in the river, I would disagree with the date.

It’s a neat photo, as the old Walkerville Wagon Works building where Ford of Canada was born is still standing.

Across the street, houses, along with some Model T’s parked out front. I’m going to guess, but I suspect the photo was taken from the bell tower at Our Lady of the Rosary.

Have a good weekend everyone! See you back here Monday.
