Silver Rail Revisited

The Silver Rail Tavern and Restaurant was located at the N/E corner of Yonge and Shuter and closed in 1997.
Another postcard from Chuckman's collection showing the restaurant that was located in the basement. There are several other postings on this site about the Silver Rail. Use the search box to find.
I was there the night it closed and was one of the last to leave. I also managed to buy two of the wall sconces the next week at the fixture sale.


  1. I really love your site and hope you can keep it up.
    Do you know anything about the building at # 601 - 611 Yonge St. ?
    I vaguely remember it had 2 floors of head shops in the early 70's, but I'd love to know
    about the history or see old photos.

  2. Thanks for the feedback. I know the building you
    mention and will try to find something to post
    about it.
