Sometime in the late 1960’s.
You can see the Toronto Packing Co. Truck to the left.
There was a chicken “processing” plant there. To the north Halper’s Drug Store and further up the old car wash.
Also the long gone angled parking.

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.

If you were at the show in 1978, I was backstage tuning their guitars.

Write a letter about why you would like to attend a party with ‘The Rolling Stones’.
I wish I had kept a copy. I wrote all the reasons I didn’t want to go.
‘I don’t want to bring the boys a great song I wrote.’
‘I don’t want to ask them what their favorite . . ..
