Sticking with our journey through the old pictures this week, is this shot of the Nevin Block, immediately west of the Walkerville Theatre, and currently home to Loreli’s Bistro.

Have a safe weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.

    Was “F. Nevin” a person? What do we know about him or her, if so?

    Why did they paint it? It’s grey in the current Google Street View.

    A sad transition indeed not only in colour but with the loss of the entrance ways. Probably more practical as it is now but Windsor has lost so much!

    I think the improvements made look good. Far better than the typical stucco job. I say that this block is a success storey for those who value historic preservation.

    Yes, much better than stucco. But I just like to see the original colour of the brick. I’m not too concerned with the entrance changes, they look OK. At least it’s not purple stucco, like the candy store, next door.
