Name that picture

I've noticed that many of the members here have quite a lot of pictures.  In that vein, I've started this thread off.  To start I'm posting 3 pictures.  In picture #1, name the location.  #2, name the site.  #3, name the object.

Here this shot might be more helpful..............   ..................................how's that better...............hahahahah                                                                  HF&RV

bigfellow6633 MSN said...

I agree,,,LMAO

les__f MSN said...

I guess that little sign over to the right of the entrance that says Wax Museum entrance ,...sort of gices it away a bit. hahahahahaha       I Remember this place had a Catacomb type tunnel entrance ,...kind of a good idea since it was close to the old StJoseph's Oratory,..... it was a neat old place,....................                        HF&RV

bigfellow6633 MSN said...

Good call...but what is in the building now?  It has a very different use now.    

les__f MSN said...

I don't know if this is correct or not,.but I'm lead to believe it's now a 24hr Pharmaprix ???                         hf&rv

bigfellow6633 MSN said...

That's right.  Big change from being the wax museum!

les__f MSN said...

Yes I would imagine they've narrowed down the amount of dummies considerably.............hahahahahah     hf&rv  

les__f MSN said...

.too bad in a way,.Cause with that elaborate Entrance or at least unique style entrance ,it would make a good dinner theater or even a new restaurant ,........ala the old Kon-Tiki Remember the sort of arches they had,.  ...Could be Kon-Tiki revisited,.............                              hf&rv

Now for the other picture.  Which metro station is it?

ccccccccccccc7148 MSN said...

picture number 5 looks like verdun metro..........................carol richer

bigfellow6633 MSN said...

Good guess Carol...You're right!

bigfellow6633 MSN said...

Can anyone name the bar in #6?

les__f MSN said...

Well ;if the shot was from the inside looking out,and not much had changed over a 35 to 40 year span,.I think I'd have a better shot at guessing,..but seeing there was not one bar or private clun that I hadn't been in in Lasalle .////////I would have to say that even though the photo is rather dark-ish,...I would guess that ,the upholstered sewer in question,would have to be the Haraki........based on the shot being taken from across the street,and a boulevard of sorts appears to be separating one side of the street from the other,..and seeing the only street's otherthan Newman Blvd ,having an actual island blvd separating them ,was Shevshenko ,.( and of course Bishop Power ,on the lower side of the Acquduct) & Airlie ( was it? or 90th)......I can't Remember rightly ,all these years later,........but I will guess Haraki ,.seeing it would have been at that end of a very small mini-mall type of spot,.......Bert's would have had a separation Btwn. the little mini-mall ( where Mama's Restaurant was ,Miss Dollard for those who prefer the real name) & it's building which I believe stood completely separate of any adjoining structures........but I digress,..........What is it? hahahahahahaha                                               HF&RV

bigfellow6633 MSN said...

It's the Hariki Bar.  Anyone else  have a picture or two to post?

bigfellow6633 MSN said...
