Park & Pelissier – 1961

Image from SWODA

From the great collection over at the Southwestern Ontario Digital Archive comes this image taken in February 1961. Looking north west to the corner of Park Street West and Pelissier. Visible on the left is the long gone Norton Palmer Hotel, and an Esso station on the right. Today this intersections is replaced with Victoria Park Place on the left and the Royal Windsor Terrace on the right. A glimpse of long lost Windsor.

**edit to reflect Park St, not University. The photo had the incorrect caption **
