This location has been labeled as Demolished, and therefore can be viewed by anyone.
This building once held the famous institution that Desjardins Sea Food was. Albert Desjardins, a succesful businessman, was the owner of the place, and had the building constructed in 1951 to replace his father's old joint on Dorchester & Guy, which became too small for his business expansion plans.
