Ferry Dock – Looking South – c. 1912

0824a

A neat shot, and one from a perspective rarely seen, this one taken from the ferry, looking south towards today’s Riverside Drive (then Sandwich Street).

0824b

At the corner of Riverside and Ouellette, a banner proclaims “Windsor Races Today”, for the Horse Races at the Jockey Club, which was located at the site of what is today Jackson Park and Kennedy Collegiate Institute. The older open streetcar can also be seen in the photograph.

Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

  1. Looks like Windsorites biked to ferry, left their bikes under the overhang, then took ferry over to Detroit. Neat contrast between horse-drawn wagon and truck parked on the wrong side of Ouellette. Looks like one of those hot and humid “in the good ol’ summertime” days? Terrific pic Andrew!
