The grocery

I mentioned George Hennessy on Saturday in the context of a plant in his possession prior to his 1969 death. In 2013 I was given access to a photograph of George in front of a grocery:

Hennessy grocery: 1923/1924
I did not then have an address for it although I knew that the 211 in the window was likely its street number. I have now been able to ascertain that it was 211 Dovercourt Rd at the north corner of Foxley St. Google's street view suggests that the current building is not what it once was but, interestingly, there's a bodega on the south side of Foxley that featured in a BlogTO story last week.
