Historic images of Montgomery Creek

Here are a few historic images of Montgomery Creek. Thanks to the City of Kitchener's Archive Specialist, Grace Smith, for finding these.

  1. We think this first one was taken in the 1960s after the City of Kitchener straightened Montgomery Creek. It looks like it might be a view of the creek taken from near Courtland Avenue East, looking north. Black and white historic photo with view of Wilson Parkette
  2. We think this overhead view of Wilson Park and Montgomery Creek might have been taken in the 1990s.
  3. This construction drawing is from 1965. It shows the plan for straightening the Wilson Avenue section of Montgomery Creek. Wilson Avenue is on the left side of the drawing. If you look closely you can see the shape of the creek before it was straightened. Follow the dark, slightly meandering line.
