Brunswick House Becomes Retail Store

interior of 481 Bloor W., formerly Brunswick House

The Brunswick House is now a Rexall Pharmacy instead of a lively but raucous neighbourhood pub. An article in the online magazine, Retail Insider, indicates how it looks now. Images show historical features that have been preserved, including the pressed-tin ceiling, exposed brick, many-layered paint, and the pub’s bar (now the cashier’s counter). The store displays historic photos, including one of the tavern’s original founder, Benjamin Hinchcliffe (1830-1911).
