Lorie Murdoch sent me the wonderful image above. She photographed these businesses (on the sunny side of Queen Street East, just a little west of Lee Avenue) in 1996.
Thank you Lorie, I don’t know how many times my son and I strolled into Beach Food Mart to be warmly greeted by Sue. There was always a great deal to be had.
Do you have any old photos of any businesses on Queen Street East that you’d like to share? Please contact me at email@example.com
EDITOR’S NOTE: The insert image, showing the location today, has been digitally altered to reflect that the Fight For Our Beach Metro News sign is now on display in the window of the former Black’s shop.
