I live here

I live in Walkerville, which is a neighbourhood of Windsor, Ontario (across the river from Detroit). It's the home of Hiram Walker Distillery (Canadian Club Whiskey) and is a community that was planned by Hiram Walker for his distillery employees. At the end of Devonshire is St. Mary's Church. Everything is still here, and in fact it is one of the best neighbourhoods in the city with many restaurants, shops, and of course awesome architecture! The Walkerville Times is a publisher in the area that focuses on the history of the area.

Only St. Mary’s Anglican Church Remains

It is at the south end of the street. Gone are the gaslamps, white picket fences and the stone house with the arched entryway on the east side of Devonshire. The photo was taken at the corner of Devonshire (N/S) and Tuscarora Street.

[There's a house that matches it two blocks north at Devonshire and Brant. -tterrace.]

St. Mary's Anglican Church

Anyone wanting to know more about that church at the end of Devonshire Road could read Ghost Storeys by Cameron Macdonell (McGill-Queen's University Press, 2017), the intriguing subtitle of which can be found in the image of the book cover, below.
