Royale Tavern

Get out your hankies, and wipe away your tears…

Yup, another local landmark has a date with the wrecking ball…

Long time Riverside landmark, the Royale Tavern is falling for some big box goodness, as Shopper’s Drug Mart has decided they need to thrust their stucco clad nonsense on this neighbourhood.

The Royale has been a fixture at the corner of Wyandotte and Dawson since at least the 1930’s.

The Royale is shown in the map above from 1937 as the Royale Hotel.

Not to worry. I’m certain that that Shopper’s will be great!

Boo history!, Yay new!
