Centennial Park update

I’d always heard there was a good bit of movie industry in Fairlie-Poplar and this building seems to have been in the thick of it.

In the 1930’s the first floor was William Dunn’s photography studio and commercial artist Roy Felker. The second floor had Poster Exchange that did theatre advertising and poster artist Clayton H Pumphrey.  In the 1950’s it was Wil-Kin Theatre Supply Inc. it was vacant for at least the last 20 years and now the fine folks at Side Bar have renovated it and opened the new Park Bar and it’s right on the Park. Yay!

And just a stones throw from the ferris wheel that’s being installed
