  2. This building, pictured Dec. 29, 1964, once served as civic offices and police and fire department headquarters for #FordCity and #Windsor before the town became part of the City of Windsor. #WindsorStar #Archives (at Ford City)

  3. The view of the greatly-expanded H.J. #Heinz plant after the boom of the 1920s is pictured in this file photo. The company borrowed from the town of #Leamington with guarantees to provide jobs and market for local produce, and it continued to repay tenfold. Strikes and worker disputes have been minimal. #WindsorStar #Archives (at Heinz)

  4. #Windsor’s first high school, located on the east side of Goyeau Street around the former site of the Windsor police garage, is pictured in this 1873 file photo. This preceded Patterson Collegiate Institute. During the depression of the 1870’s it served as a centre for food distribution to the needy under the auspices of the Women’s Benevolent Association - hence soup kitchen. It also served as a benevolent centre for children’s work at the turn of the century. #WindsorStar #Archives #WindsorOntario (at The Windsor Star)

  6. Robbin Walker, left, seems a bit overwhelmed by the amorous advances of classmate Michon Houston on Feb. 14, 1987, whose smile shows his heart is obviously in the right place. The two six-year-old Grade 1 pals are among the pupils at Marlborough Public School who are showing the city how big a heart they have this Valentine’s Day. For the past two weeks, they’ve been collecting funds for Save the Children, the international development agency which feeds needy children and their families in more than 25 countries around the world.

  7. The ferry Essex, built in September 1860 and one the first to operate, is shown at the #Windsor customs house before taking off for #Detroit. The year is not indicated on the photo, but it is estimated to be about 1865. The Essex was considered an advance in ferries when it came on the scene. It was said to be a great improvement on the earlier ships, some of which even were propelled from the shore by horses using a turntable. This proved too expensive. #WindsorStar #Archives #WindsorOntario
