Throwback Thursday

Looking north to Detroit, this week’s Throwback Thursday Pic was taken on Ouellette Avenue with a view towards downtown. This image was captured in the late 1940s, with the photographer aiming the camera towards the commercial hub of Windsor from just south of the Wyandotte Street intersection. Pond’s Drug Store (now part of Shoppers Drug Mart) is located on the left side of the frame at the intersection, the large building in the centre of the photograph is the Prince Edward Hotel and the Detroit skyline can be seen in the background. If you are interested in viewing other historic images of Windsor, please visit the library’s digital exhibit “Windsor’s History and Pictures” at https://windsorpubliclibrary.contentdm.oclc.org/.
