Throwback Thursday

This week’s Throwback Thursday Pic shows the block of Pitt Street West, looking northeast at the corner of Pitt and Ferry Streets. This photograph was taken around 1963 and shows the Murray Building, Underwood Typewriters, Allards Barber Shop, Windsor Paints Enamels and Varnishes and Texaco Canada Co. The block fell to the wrecker’s ball to make way for the new Chrysler Building in the late 1990s.
