Demolitiongoing, going, gone...Windsor

Demolition Notice

A pair of demolitions underway this week…

First off and already gone, the former Horseshoe Battery on Ouellette Ave. on the south end of the Jackson Park overpass.

This one started the other day, and it’s already long gone. Not any kind of historic building, but one that was there as long as I can remember…

Secondly, the old Canadian Motor Lamp factory on Seminole, just east of Walker.

A part of our industrial heritage is leaving us. Interesting to note, we looked at this place back in 2006, and even then it looked unsafe and ready to collapse. If you’re interested, drive by and take a gander, cause this one will be gone soon.

Thanks to regular reader Paul B. for the heads up on the CML demolition.

Have a safe weekend everyone, we’ll see you back here Monday!
