Parkdale Butcher, Chas Gailer.
Next door at 1484 is the plumbing business of William G.D.Adams. I lived at 1484 Queen West above the store for a number of years in the 1980’s….
When I first moved in (1983) the Shoppers drug Store was an old Woolworths (with a lunch counter) but it was gone shortly after. The apartment above the Jeans Store has been empty since the late 1930’s. It’s a complete 2 story apartment with a grand entrance at the top of the stairs. Originally built for the shopkeeper’s family to live in it’s like visiting the Titanic. I used to take people through it on “ghost tours” as I knew the secret entrance. Time stopped here in 1938 or so……
