1415 Janette Avenue

This factory at 1415 Janette at the corner of Jannette and Ellis, has always made me wonder what it used to be.

I recently came across this photo in an ad in the Windsor Star from 1955, showing the new Canadian Plant of Tums. Who knew that Tums were once made in Windsor? The factory is a nice mid century industrial design, and is still in use today as Arrow Mailing.
