1988. I was living in the apartment above BB Shoes when Patrick Cummins took this shot.

Queen and Bathurst/Then and Now

The south side of Queen just west of the corner in the mid 1980's. The Paddock Tavern used to wrap around the corner with another entrance on Bathurst. I don't know when it was truncated. Photo by Patrick Cummins.
The front of the Holiday Tavern looking west across Bathurst with the
Paddock Tavern in the B/G sometime in the 1960's.

Queen and Portland/Then and Now

The north side of Queen at Portland in the early 1980's.
Photo by Patrick Cummins.
This strip of Queen still had a strong Eastern European presence back then.
I remember that the owner of this used book store (previously located further east on Queen) got onto some trouble for inappropriate behaviour....
An even earlier photo from 1958 can be found here.
