Scope and Content
Accession consists of one original negative and one copy print of Paskowetz's Meat Inn on College St.
Paskowetz's delicatessen was located on the north side of College Street between Brunswick Avenue and Major Street. Other businesses in the neighbourhood described by one time area resident Harry Turk included: The [Playhouse Theatre] (next door to Paskowetz's deli); Wellts Delicatessen owned by Peter Wellts (west of Paskowetz's deli), Imperial Gas station at College and Major Streets owned by the Rubinoff family and Beckers Delicatessen, owned by the Becker family, located on the south side of College Street. Milt Moskowitz, a Major Street kid recalls "the fragrance of hot dogs boiling in a big pot in the window. They cost 5 cents and I only ate one that my older brother (he was twenty and working and I was seven) bought me once. Wow. It was delicious."
