The Boiler Room – 1534 Howard Ave.

Regular reader Aaron, asked about his old neighbourhood watering hole, the Boiler Room. There was a fire there around 1999/2000, and the building sat derelict for a few years, before being bulldozed in August 2001. Sadly I never got a picture of it before it came down, the day I was going to go take one, it was already gone.

I don’t have much history on the building, but many may remember this sign on Howard.

Anyone have any memories of the place?

The 1919, directory has no listing while the 1922 directory lists it as the Howard Avenue Hospital, A.H. Hunt, mgr. Medical & Surgical, one entire floor reserved for maternity.

By 1923 it appears as a rooming house, and later on, a bar. Quite the interesting history…. The site has been replaced by a duplex, and it is still mostly vacant.
