-Yes it is
-Wow ... so different today!!
-Fina before it became Petro Canada
-Yes. Fina Service Station is now the Petro Canada across Guelph Street from Angels which was originally built as a Shoe Store then became ProShooters Pool Hall.
-That's what it looked like when you had your Norton and I had my 71 500 Kawi Bill Barnstaple
- it was Kinney’s Shoes, my 2nd part time job 💲
-Yes that’s when you pulled a wheelie exiting the A&W (Pizza Pizza now)and slid part way off onto your belly and went across Guelph Street into the Fina before gaining control.

Bill Greig I remember Bill. That's why I have arthritis in my knees and back now. Still wouldn't trade those days and memories. That wheelie was very close to losing it lol.
-I remember the front wheel going up so high you came off onto your feet then dove onto the seat on your stomach while still holding onto the handlebars. Going across Guelph Street into the Fina without crashing or having someone run you over. Regaining control and coming back.
-Those were the crazy insane days Bill. I remember your wheels riding the curb on Rex way turning from 7 at a high speed. It's amazing that were still here lol.
-Before Pro Shooters I remember it was a Hasty Mart or Short Stop... Early 80's...I remember going there and getting WWF Wrestling Magazines as kid.
-This pic looks like it was taken from the Dogs 'n' Suds parking lot?
-Wow. Fina. A name I didn't even remember till now. I thought it was a Gulf
-60km... Metric already?
-This was 1978
-I worked the night shift at Petro Canada for awhile around 78-79, great old pic!Thanks Bonnie.
-Super old pic My how things have changed
-I'm actually amazed not by how much the intersection has changed, but rather by how little it has changed in 40 years. The same buildings, just a changed gas station. Nothing else new, no intensified development of a high profile intersection, just the same buildings as 1978 or earlier.
-back in the day wasn't Wendy's an A&W? Remember they were designed the old way when the food came out on a tray and hung on your window!!
-it was an old school A and W until about 1977 I think.
-I used to work at that A & W as a carhop. Also remember accidentally dumping a tray of drinks on someone once because the window wasn't rolled down far enough. Was he ever mad lol
-I remember those days!
-1978 would have been taken from the McDonalds entrance across the old Car Wash entrance..
-Does anyone know what used to be on the corner where Guelph view plaza ( large brown brick building) is now
-Rex Heslop built the building in the 60s, it was his offices. Rented out offices to lawyers etc. Swim Labs were there a while as well as the Georgetown Leader newspaper. When he sold the plaza, it was part of the deal.
-Rex Jr. added the brick building seen in the photo. The original office and land was not part of the plaza deal. He named it Guelphview Square. The original front faces Guelph Street and was the Heslop Offices during construction at one time too.
-Harry Lieder the lawyer in there was Manderson - I worked a school co-op for him in 1969-70. Great experience
-Yes, I remember that Maurice Manderson and his son Bill (I think)....My dad and I used to clean the offices. My dad was the caretaker for that building and the plaza in the 60s.
-I only remember it as Delrex Developments building in early 60’s
-I think there was a medical clinic in there to. But, yep it was the Delrex building
-The Niagara Escarpment Commission operated out of the brown brick.
-I worked at the Petro graveyard shift as well back in the 80's
- is that Guelph and Mountainview?
-My dad ran the Fina station back then. I remember going out to pump gas with him.
-that was 1969. yikes a long time ago
-Wow! What year has this photo been taken?
- That PHONE BOOTH!! I remember that phone booth being there for years and years! 😍
-Still Kinneys and Bank of Nova Scotia across the street ?
