mystery photos 21

Who? Where? Why? When? What? (answers)
1.

Bells Corners FREE Bike-taxi at the Centennial Library
2.


3.

– I’m not sure what it is, but it’s stored outside the fire station.

4.

– two scoundrels at Zola’s
5.

– painter working on the PriceChopper to FreshCo conversion
6.

7.


8.

– a funny caption from Rick pretending that he convinced the owner to tear it down – total BS.
9.


There’s rubber on one side of the steps but there’s nothing to protect skate blades between the top of the steps and the change room. In the last ten years the WECA has received around $50,000 from the City for the rink. A rubber mat between the top of the stairs and the change room might cost $100. At the very least the rink operator could spend $10 to put a mat below the door, so skaters could walk on the snow until they get close to the door.

10.

– interior hallway at the Bell Mews plaza (Bohemian Kitchen on the left) – Bells Corners’ loveliest floor

11.


– Business is not great at the Loblaws – big changes are coming (no more union, etc.)
12.


– sign to discourage punks from coming in to steal the drugs, a common problem here and elsewhere in the city

    3 – ?
    4 – Photo op at….. ( was going to say Zola’s but don’t think so) – You should have said Zola’s.

    6 – The Bicycle Doctor? – Yup!
    7 – Lady at the Spa! – Another cigar!
    8 – Vox finally demo’d. Funny, I walk past that site all the time and forget that building was even there. Out of site, out of mind. – Yes, the caption is funny – Rick pretending that he convinced the owner to tear it down – total BS.
    9 – ?
    10 – Interior hallway at Bell Mews (Bohemian Kitchen on the left) – Yes, the most beautiful floor in Bells Corners.
    11 – ?
    12 – Appletree Medical center (?) (reasons for relinquishing of his privileges unknown) – Yes, the sign is to discourage punks from coming in to steal the drugs, a common problem here and elsewhere in the city.

    #1 bike-taxi NOT on St. Paddy’s Day 🙂 … site library? – Yup, the Centennial Library.

    #9 from the rink steps looking to Westcliffe building – seen that a few times – really looks shoddy though and the steps could do with a bit of repair … – Yes. There’s rubber on one side of the steps but there’s nothing to protect skate blades between the top of the steps and the change room.

    #11 some drug store maybe Rexall – No!

    That IS a nice building as far as floors go. I walked in to drop off some documents at an office there in the back and went, “whoa, this is a nice floor!” (seriously)
    It was like a little discovery I made in Bells Corners. And yes, my life is quite boring these days. 😉

    – It could always be worse – most other neighbourhoods in the city are WAY more boring than dear old Bells Corners.

    1. Bike-taxi at library near entrance – Bingo!
    3. Seen this ages ago, can’t place it, but maybe Pizza Hut mall? – You’re WARM. (hint, hint)
    11. Rexall’s hours on door – Steeeerike!

  5. Dave Mc says:

    Quick note: That “Timings 10am to 8pm” sign in the previous mystery photos IS at the allspice store. I was just there today.
    I think it’s just a bad interpretation of a store hours sign by the owner.
    Margaret gets a cigar after all.

    – Thanks for the correction – I was out to lunch. Margaret gets TWO cigars.
