Deja Views: From Babbage’s in the 1980s to the Fill Station today

We have a fantastic contribution today from Chris Souwand. Chris was a student back in the mid-1980s who shot restaurant facades in the Beach for a school project.

Today’s reckoning: Babbage’s!

The building is located on the sunny side of Queen Street East, just east of Silver Birch. Today it’s the Fill Station, yet another fine Beach establishment to wet your beak.

Thank you Chris for your wonderful contribution.
