Sometime in the late 1960’s.

There was a chicken “processing” plant there. To the north Halper’s Drug Store and further up the old car wash.

    Hey even I remember the angled parking. And being a kid from the suburbs, I probably never saw Spadina until I drove it while in film.
    Wait there was that show at the Elmo in ’78 with ‘The Rolling Stones’ that I went to.

    ‘I don’t want to bring the boys a great song I wrote.’
    ‘I don’t want to ask them what their favorite . . ..
