The Royal Windsor Garage – 334 Dougall – 1937

1107

Another one for the lost Windsor category. The long demolish Royal Windsor Garage. The Royal Windsor Garage was located on Dougall between University and Park, and sat to the rear of the Royal Windsor Apartments. The Rose Garden Villa Long Term Care Home currently occupies the site today. I’m not sure when it was demolished. It’s visible in the aerial photo I have access to from 1961, but it’s already gone and replaced in the photo from 1981. If it stayed the official garage of the Norton Palmer, it may have lasted into the late 1970’s along with the hotel. Anyone remember this place?
