Ouellette Avenue – 1927

Happy Friday! Today’s picture is uncaptioned but is dated June 7, 1927. The sign up in the top left reads “Welcome Police Chiefs”, so there must have been a conference in town. A neat shot looking north up Ouellette Avenue from University.

This is my favourite part of the shot. It shows streetcar # 401 on Ouellette, and beside it there’s the Victoria Building which burned in 1945, as well as the two buildings south which make up part of the Chanoso’s complex today. Both good looking building in their prime.

Enjoy the long weekend everyone! Be safe, due to the holiday, regular posting resumes Wednesday.
