Notes: 
c. 1863; looking east along Sandwich Street (Riverside Drive) from Ouellette Avenue; moving right to left: Ashley And Gilkes; Ouellette And Langlois (ground floor); Record Printing Company (upstairs) - their newspaper files all destroyed in the 1871 fire; Cameron And Thorburn's Store (3 storey building) on ground floor - later Bartlet, MacDonald And Gow; the Exchange Office run by William Holton; the first house with the peaked roof was the original International Hotel (although in this photograph it is still the Windsor Saloon with rooms above); there is a sign for Johnson, T. N. who owned the British Commercial Hotel; the building in the background, far left, is the old town/city hall; "Standing on the street is Joseph F. Ouellette's bus and his faithful horses, White Dick and Black Mag. This was the mode of travel between Sandwich and Windsor before the introduction of the horse car." (page 81)
