Pitt Street Looking East – 1920

Happy Wednesday everyone! A neat shot looking east down Pitt Street towards Ouellette. The street car at the end of the shot is on the other side of Ouellette and was the W.E. & L.S. car to the county. The closest building on the left beside the car is the real estate office of George Lawton. Lawton was a designer and builder of many homes around Windsor and the Border Cities, his most famous house being Devonshire Lodge or as it’s better known today, the Low-Martin house.

In true Windsor fashion, nearly everything you can see here has been demolished.
