Make A Date… For The Time Of Your Life – Elmwood Part I

This brochure dates to about c. 1955, upon the opening of the Motor Hotel.

Not only were they the LARGEST, but they were also the GAYEST supper club in Canada.

This was the line up of the main guys in charge of the Elmwood. I wonder if any of them are still around? I bet they could tell some stories…






These rooms were once a first class destination, now they are home to recovering addicts.

The dining/show room and bars were well known on the entertainment circuit. It seems like back then everyone had an Imperial Room.
