BREWED IN WINDSOR
a tasty history
 

How did a small Canadian city become home to six major breweries?

WINDSOR THEN

Like snippets from a long forgotten dream, the 150 black and white photos in “Windsor Then” chronicle the evolution of a sleepy Canadian town at the western edge of the British Empire, as it transforms into a manufacturing powerhouse.

 

Culled from the archives of Walkerville Publishing Inc., these intriguing images, snapped between 1860 to 1960, reveal in fascinating detail how Windsor’s denizens once lived, travelled, worked, played, fought and loved. 

 

Windsor Then is a unique portrait of this community’s once boundless optimism, its innovators, its schemers, and its simple, hard-working folk living in an era of remarkable change and great expectations — in stark contrast to the Windsor of today.
