Proposed Hiram Walker Memorial – 1927

From the Border Cities Star – May 28, 1927:

    Walkerville ratepayers will vote Monday on a bylaw providing for the expenditure of $10,000 to construct the memorial shown in the sketch in honor of the late Hiram Walker, founder and benefactor of the municipality. The memorial, if approved, will be located at the north side of Willistead, the beautiful mansion erected by E. Chandler Walker, a son of the founder, and later donated to the town as a municipal building.

When the vote went down, only 391 citizens voted, and the proposal was defeated at the ballot box, 246 against to 145 in favour.

Now this memorial exists as part of unbuilt Windsor…

Have a great weekend everyone! See you back here Monday.
