THROWBACK THURSDAY

Taken around 1938, this week’s Throwback Thursday Pic is of the southwest corner of Wyandotte Street and Ouellette Avenue. In this photograph, the local grocery store chain M & P had its Ouellette Market Store at this location as well as a newspaper stand and the streetcar tracks of the Windsor, Sandwich and Amherstburg Railway can also be found in this image. This corner has completely changed since this image was captured on film and would be unrecognizable today.
