Willistead Manor to Receive Historic Portrait

Edward Chandler Walker portraitWindsor’s Willistead Manor will be receiving an historic portrait of Edward Chandler Walker, the second son of Hiram Walker and the man responsible for Willistead Manor being built in 1904-1906.

The portrait was created by Gari Melchers and had been donated to the Corcoran Gallery in Washington DC by Edward Chandler Walker’s widow when she moved away from Walkerville in 1915.  The Corcoran Gallery closed in 2014, and its holdings were given to either the National Gallery of Art or to The George Washington University.  Eventually the National Gallery of Art began a process to de-accession pieces that did not fit within their mandate. 

In 2016, the Willistead Board of Directors reached out to request specifically that the portrait of Edward Chandler Walker be returned to Willistead and recently received word from the lawyers representing the Corcoran Trustees that the request had been accepted.

There’s no word yet on when the portrait will arrive, but when it does it will be displayed in Willistead Manor.

For more information on the Corcoran Gallery and the complete list of all the works being distributed visit the gallery website at

Parking App Hits 20,000

“The uptake has been excellent, so we’re obviously really pleased,” said Parking Compliance and Enforcement Supervisor Bill Kralovensky.  “But, the most important thing for us has been the positive feedback, showing that people are not only using the service, but they’re happy to have it as well.”

Nic Puim, owner and operator of The Dugout on Ouellette Avenue was lucky user 20,000 and received a special visit and gift from Kralovensky. “We just wanted to say thanks for using it and get a little person-to-person feedback at the same time.”

 “I think the app is great. My customers can renew their spots without having to get up from their table,” said Mr. Puim. “It’s really handy.”

Information about the app has been placed on City of Windsor parking meters and pay units directing interested users to log on through their smart phone. Once there, users are able to download the Pay for Parking App and then pay for parking at the click of a button.

Coins Still Accepted

The new app doesn’t replace coin operations in Windsor, so drivers who wish to use coins rather than the app that links to their credit card are still be able to do so.

The new service has been in operation since December of 2017.
