Full story: Lake Cowichan Gazette

The place isn't quite what it used to be. In some stretches, it's littered with abandoned buildings, busted windows and businesses that gave up the fight.

Wow what I remember about Woodward Avenue is the Body Shop, with the car on the top. Ted's restruant, the busses, the zoo, and Red Barn resturant.

Are any of these places still there.

Wetmores was the building with the car on top. It was an alignment shop. Wheels on the car wobbled. It was cool looking place. Fond memories of the Lincoln Soda Grill too. Nicks Bar. Mary Yarbrough. Long time ago.. Ferndale GREAT! STILL LOVE DETROIT! Rock On and Return to Glory!

I recently hired an African butler. I don't need the help, I just enjoy the nostalgia when he calls me master.
