The Dominion House entrance signs. Incredible. They came into the collections room yesterday, along with original train tickets from the turn of the century, they were sitting in the safe this whole time. Who's got a story to share about the Dominion House? ...

1st time I saw B.W. Pawley , 1971-72 Drinking age dropped to 18 that year. Anybody remember the song “Chocolate covered teardrops”
I sang with a number of bands at the DH over the years. Part of a Stratford musicians rite of passage. Fun times.
My Stepfather and former owner of the DH, Rick Quinn, donated the history of the DH that my Mom, Lynda Gettler Quinn researched an wrote to the Archives. It's available to read if anyone is interested.
