Windsor

Windsor Gas Company – c. 1923

Another great old shot of downtown Windsor. This one dates from the early 1920’s. It shows the old Windsor Gas Company office building on Chatham Street West. Long gone of course.

Here the 1937 fire insurance map showing the layout of the block (the Gas building is marked in yellow). The Terrace houses covered here previously can be seen immediately west of the Gas building. I bet you’ll never guess what’s there today?

It’s the Easter long weekend. Good Friday and Easter Monday there will be no post. See you back here a week from now! Have a safe weekend.
