    The first photograph of this series later became Malloney’s. It was one of the
    few places in Ontario with a stand-up bar. In those days, it was required that a client be seated to be served an alcoholic drink. Malloney’s was quite popular with
    the advertising agencies nearby–Yonge and Carlton was where most of the
    agencies were located until they moved uptown to Yonge and St. Clair.
