The Blue Bell Tavern

The Blue Bell was on Queen Street near Givins in what was then known as Blue Bell Village. The intersection of Ossington and Queen was actually the beginning of Dundas Street as shown on the map below from 1884.
I've also seen this hotel located on Dundas and Shaw.
More vintage maps can be found here.

Here's a detailed map from 1890 or so showing Parkdale and some of the original street names.
