Ghost Pictures – Kingsville

Today’s photos come courtesty of regular reader JBM. The first one is from Lansdowne Avenue in Kingsville. This one shows the old water tower from the MacDonald Leaf Company.

JBM tells me this plant operated from about 1919 through 1973.

The last one is from Park St. just east of Lansdowne, and shows the sign for the long gone Lakeshore Terrace Hotel. The hotel was gone by 2000… there must be someone out there who can fill in stories on either place. I’m not that familiar with the county, so I need some help on these ones from my readers who are familiar with Kingsville.
