THROWBACK THURSDAY

This week’s Throwback Thursday Pic is of a Windsor Steam Fire Engine. This photograph was taken sometime in the 1870s.

THROWBACK THURSDAY

Completed 90 years ago, the Drouillard Road underpass allowed for the continuation of Wyandotte Street East. Until completion, Wyandotte Street East terminated at Walker Road and forced travellers going eastbound to continue to do so on Riverside Drive. This week’s Throwback Thursday Pic taken in 1930, shows the construction of the Drouillard Road underpass that allowed for the connection of Wyandotte Street East to what was then called Ottawa Street in East Windsor (Ford City). It was renamed Wyandotte Street East on December 1, 1931 by Continue Reading...
