So nice to discover that some venerable old buildings survive the onslaught of ‘modernization’
The middle photo: I remember those old streetcars very well 🙂

In my day, those PCC cars were the modern ones, replacing the old Peter Witt models. Greg, I’d post a picture of a Peter Witt car, but I don’t know how to do it. Dad.

I remember travelling on a couple of those old square streetcars in the late 50’s, early 60’s. I seem to recall the old wood seats running the length of the car facing each other. Someone correct me if I got this wrong:-( And did they ramble!! 🙂

Great that the only elements all three pictures share are the road and the venerable old building itself. I remember drinking there reguarly in the early 80s, when I lived at Adelaide and Tecumseth. Love the signature tower on the corner.
