Deja Views: Scratch Danial’s on Queen Street East remembered

This photo shows Scratch Danial's on Queen Street East in 1985. Photo by Chris Souwand.


I remember I was a little sad when Scratch Danial’s closed its doors. It was a favourite watering hole for many a Beacher.

We have Chris Souwand to thank for this photo. It was taken in 1985 for a school project.

The building is on the shady side of Queen Street East just by Leuty Avenue.

Do you have any old photos sitting in a shoebox like Chris did? Why not share them with our readership.
