Notes: This photograph is the exact same one as postcard: http://swoda.uwindsor.ca/node/100 from around 1908; an almost identical postcard is on page 21 of Postcards From The Past, Vol. 1 (Leddy: FC3095.E8 P67) is postmarked June 14th, 1908; however, the photograph was probably taken in 1893; Windsor was the first Canadian city to introduce electric street cars in 1886. In 1893, the system was expanded along Ouellette Avenue and connected the downtown with Windsor Race Track (now Jackson Park); the postcard shows Ouellette Avenue looking north from near Chatham Street; the Manning House Hotel (later the Royal Bank), built in 1887, is at the right on the southeast corner of Ouellette Avenue and Pitt Street; the old post office building is first building on the left.
