Bloor and Islington/ Then and Now

This photo was taken in 1958.Sometime later the second floor was added and it's been
the Black Angus Steakhouse since the 1964.

I recently found some information about Joseph Sankey and Sons:
Sankeys had always been into export in a big way. In 1943 they set up Sankey Electrical Stampings Ltd. in Bombay (Mumbai) to produce electrical laminations. In 1950 another factory for electrical laminations was set up in Calcutta (Kolkata). In the same year an electrical laminations factory was started in Newcastle, Australia, and steel furniture factory was opened in Johannesburg. In 1952 a factory for both electrical laminations and steel furniture was opened in Canada.
