Metropole Tavern – c. 1960

An old postcard shot looking south on Walker Road at Niagara Street in Walkerville. It shows what was then the Metropole Tavern, it was more recently known as Big Tony’s after a long run as California’s.

A detail shot of the great old neon sign that once graced the facade of this old watering hole.
