Essex Wire

I recently came across this old ad from 1935 for the Essex Wire Company on McDougall. The Essex Wire Factory you might recall was demolished just about a year ago… In true Windsor fashion, it’s been replaced with a vacant lot.

To help jog your memories, a few Google Streetview images are attached, along with an overhead view. Hope everyone had a good long weekend.
