Southlawn Gardens – South Windsor Development Company Limited – 1949

An interesting old ad. This one is from 1949, still trying to sell lots down in Southlawn Gardens. Interestingly the ad was put out by the South Windsor Development Company Limited. I have seen references to the South Windsor Development Company Limited on subdivision ads going back to the late 1920’s.

I got to thinking, there’s a giant Southlawn Gardens sign on Dougall just north of Cabana….

Interestingly the bottom of the sign reads… South Windsor Development Company Limited. According to the Yellow Pages they’re still in the Canada Building too… I wonder if they still have old records back to the 1920’s?

Maybe we need to add the South Windsor Development Company to the list of oldest business too. 😉

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