Wyandotte and Lincoln – 1929

From the Border Cities Star – February 7, 1929: (Thanks to regular reader Mike F. for pointing out this photo to me…)

    This view of Wyandotte street, Walkerville, looking east from the Windsor boundary, shows the town’s principal business district. On either side of the street is lined with flourishing, progressive business establishments that are second to none in the Border Cities. Stores of practically every kind are to be found on this busy thoroughfare.

This is one of the few “then and now” type shots that still have recognizable buildings 83 years later. Thank goodness for Walkerville.

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday!
