Ouellette Avenue & Chatham Street – c. 1925

A different view today. This postcard shows Ouellette Avenue looking south. In the foreground to the left is what’s under the blue metal siding of the Shanfields-Meyers China Shop. The old Bank of Montreal Building can be seen on the south side of Chatham Street.To the left is the old Vital Ouellette house, which has been many different things over the years, but probably best known for its long run as Jason’s. The original steeple at St. Alphonsus is also visible, as are the grounds of the old St. Mary’s Academy on the far right hand side of the picture.
