The Canadian Pacific Railway terminal (1890) was located on Riverside Drive near Caron Avenue. The CPR station featured a stylish stone turret and ramp east of the Windsor Salt Company, which housed its first offices. Abandoned in the 1920s when a new facility was built farther south near Wellington Ave., it was demolished in the 1930s. Walking along the riverfront path, you may notice its foundation below the overpass on Riverside Dr. near the CBC building.
