Windsor Fairgrounds – 1913

The picture above, taken about 1913, was taken from “Garden Gateway to Canada”. It shows the corner of Ouellette and Tecumseh, and the site today occupied by the Jackson Park Gates.

While it was part of the Windsor Driving Park, the horse track that one occupied the site, these were the Fairgrounds Buildings/Exhibition Hall that once stood on the site. They were used as barracks to house troops during the first world war, and I believe they lasted into the early 1920s.
