Apartments - Grier Apt

Apartments - Grier Apt
A notice from the Windsor Evening Record, February 27, 1913;
"Apartment House in Walkerville.
Charles L. Chilver is preparing to build a six family apartment house at Sandwich street east and Victoria road, Walkerville, which will cost about $25,000. Mr Chilver expects later to build an eight-family apartment on the same property, but facing Victoria road. The dimensions of the first apartment will be 82 x 33 feet, constructed of brick, and fitted throughout with hardwood and modern conveniences. The new building will be constructed on the old Chilver homestead, where Mr Chilver was born, 63 years ago."

This is the name plate for the Grier - the original six-family apartment.

[Note - Sandwich street east is now known as Riverside Drive East... and Victoria road (named for Chilver's mother) was renamed to be Chilver Road, when Walkerville became a part of nearby Windsor - which already had a well-known road named Victoria]
