    Nice to see some venerable old buidings defying the wrecking balls 🙂
    But for how long?:-(

    An A& W? Really? Shoot me now. Too bad that missing spire. Gave the building some added distinction.

  5. Greg, thank you for this valuable insight into Parkdale history.

  6. Parkdale has always been proud of not having many fast food chains. Recent incursions include MacDonalds, Subway, Burrito Boys and possible A&W…

  7. An A&W seems like an odd choice for the area. Thanks for the post! BTW, I think there could be an entire blog post on the “lost spires of Queen West”.
