Les neiges d'antan

That building I mentioned back a ways? The Lothian Mews. (Name and much salient detail courtesy my brother. I am constantly amazed at people with visual memories.) Here is a grainy photo from the 60's, by the look of it. You can see the Jack and Jill Coffee House just above the courtyard fountain. A coffee house where you sat outside was a novelty in 1964. Lothian Mews was an award winning design, therefore and of necessity torn down in 1984. And now I think of it, maybe the Florentine Shop was in Lothian Mews first?

For me- nostalgic talk of Toronto restaurants past.

And someone who feels about Yorkville as I do.
