Dundas and Lansdowne/Then and Now

Dundas and Lansdowne/Then and NowLooking east from Dundas across Lansdowne in 1917. The building on the S/E corner is a bank.
For years afterwards it was the Dunlan restaurant and had a wonderful 1940’s stainless counter and several small booths. Scenes from David Cronenberg’s Naked Lunch were shot there in 1991.
Below some screen grabs from Naked Lunch. At first it was used  a New York Diner and then later re-dressed as a Moroccan Coffee house.

It appears that it was a music academy before a restaurant.

Here’s another shot looking south on Lansdowne with the Dunlan in the B/G. The grey building on the left was a Hotel.
