Notes: James Dougall (1810-1888) moved to Windsor in the mid 1830s with his father, John Dougall, Senior, and opened up the first general store in the region. His brother John Dougall, Junior was also a partner. James Dougall was very active in local politics and supported many educational causes; the store, which also had a wharf, was located on Sandwich Street at Ferry Street. On the illustration: "Dry goods at wholesale" and "Groceries and provisions"; the illustration comes from William B. Howe who was a stationer and bookseller at 192 Jefferson Avenue in Detroit.
