Old Parkdale/ Queen and Brock/Then and Now

Looking east along Queen at Brock in the early 1920's or so.
A current view.


  1. Budget Super Saving Discount (what a name!) has been closed for at least a couple of years now. The windows were papered over with some unfamiliar graphic logo with the promise of something opening soon, but that was a while ago, and nothing seems to have happened since then. It's a prime bit of retail real estate especially now that gentrification seems to have surged past the underpass at Gladstone, but I'm suspecting someone was undercapitalized.

  2. I don't know if you were ever in there but they had a small "Voodoo" section at the back with black skull candles and various aerosol cans with names like "Bad Spirit Remover" and "Gypsy Curse Begone" etc.
    I know they've moved across the street so it might be worth a look.
