Sandwich Street Looking West – 1895


Image from the SWODA

A shot of the south side of today’s Riverside Drive looking west from Ouellette. The front entrance of Merchants Bank building (later the Ritz Hotel) is visible on the right hand side of the photograph. The old Norwich Block is visible on the left hand side, along with the block now occupied by the former Cleary Auditorium (now the St. Clair Centre for the arts). Like Wednesday’s picture, this one also appears to have been taken from the old British American Hotel as well.

Hard to believe this is the view today of the same place, in the same city.

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