THROWBACK THURSDAY

This week’s Throwback Thursday Pic is a 1975 image of an Ouellette Avenue street scene in downtown Windsor, when it was still Windsor’s main shopping district. The commercial businesses found in this photograph include The Connection, McCance Men’s Store, Klein Travel and Sam the Record Man. All businesses, except for The Connection, were located in the Paramount Building. This building still stands today, but has a new exterior, and contains Thai and Indian restaurants and a variety store.
