Whatever happened to…? Contest to measure memories

A previous contest offering the book 500 Ways You Know You’re from Windsor as a prize was so popular, DailyNews is reprising it.

The book, by UWindsor alumnus Chris Edwards (BA 1983, MA 1985) and his partner Elaine Weeks of Walkerville Publishing, is a hardbound, full-colour collection of more than 650 photographs documenting recollections and images from Windsor’s baby boomer years.

The publishers have donated a copy for today’s contest. The winner will be randomly selected from all correct responses received by 4 p.m. Wednesday, July 4.

To be eligible, select the most correct answer to each of the following questions, inspired by images drawn from the pages of the book:
