Notes: Unused, c. 1908; this postcard has the same photograph as: http://swoda.uwindsor.ca/node/1119 (from Picturesque Detroit, 1893); there is also an almost identical postcard on page 21 of Postcards From The Past, Vol. 1 (Leddy: FC3095.E8 P67) that is postmarked June 14th, 1908; the photograph was probably taken in 1893; Windsor was the first Canadian city to introduce electric street cars in 1886.
