Walkerville Bank Of Montreal – 1959

Today’s photo shows the Walkerville branch of the Bank of Montreal at Wyandotte and Chilver on June 9, 1959, following a daylight bank robbery in which a Windsor police office was shot. A good description of the robbery can be found here on the Walkerville Times website. The building, built in 1912 as the Merchants Bank was designed by Montreal architects Morely Hogle & Huntly Ward Davis.

The building is today better known as the Gourmet Emporium, too bad those original front doors didn’t survive…

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.
