I just dropped my kids off at Lachine High 45 minutes ago.(now Lakeside Academy, and merged with Bishop Whelan High). Today is the first day of school for them after summer vacation. My uncle graduated from Bishop Whelan in 1968.
Unfortunately, the restaurant at 45th and St-Joseph (to the left of where my car was when I took this picture) burned down sometime in the late 90's and there are now condos lining that block of St-Joseph between 45th and 46th avenues.

The restaurant burnt down for the last time in '98, a week or two before the ice storm hit us hard. My mom and I watched the firemen putting the last of the fire out. It was something to see.

I was living in the Arctic when the restaurant burned down, but I will always remember it. It's the spot where I stood and watched my present-day wife head off to her classes in a taxi, the morning after our first night together. We had our eyes locked through the back window of the cab until it rounded the curve by 48th Avenue. All in all, we still consider it one our more romantic memories.

I lived the first 25 yrs of my life on 45th. I have great memories of Carmellos barber shop, the Dominion store that had dixie lanes bowling on top.

I absolutely value every memory I have from growing up on 45th Avenue. I haven't lived in Lachine since '98 yet I STILL dream about my days working at Dixie and the Video store (until that terrible new year's eve fire. While the video store never burned, the fire department sprayed so much water in the store to prevent the fire from continuing it's Northern run that almost everything was destroyed. The Royal Bank now stands where Video 29cents once stood). As far as the old Gas Station it was there, at 6 years old, that I broke my only bone to date, after the guard dog scared me off the short wall that used to divide the station from Stoney Point Park. Ya gotta love Lachine.

I too lived in Lachine from mid 50s to 1970 when my dad was transferred to ottawa. I am trying to collect stories and tidbits like these to rewrite my mom's childhood history in a short story .."these were truly the good old days" .. What we called pohey Louie is now such a beautiful park area. "Dixie island"...anyone got old pictures or map of Stoney Point? What was name of 5+dime store? Is there still anyone around that might have info on streetcar to Stoney Point then get on smaller one called trolley car to get from 44 to 56th?

Lived on 45th. Avenue in the 60's - my family moved in the late 60's and then after marrying my HS sweetheart, came back in the 1990's. Lived on 46th. avenue when the children were young (and went to the same HS - Lachine High as me and my wife). Here is a sketch
made of "Charlie's" rememberd from when I was growing up - anyone else remember this?

My Dad and uncle owned Miss Dixie Restaurant. I have a lot of good memories working there during my youth. The restaurant burned down sometime in January - it was during or after the ice storm. I remember driving by and thinking it looked like an ice palace. My Dad passed away a month before the fire. I am glad he didn't get to see it. It was his home for over 30 years.

I lived on 46th ave. and also have many fond memories of Stoney Point and Dixie shopping center. The old fire station had a bus stop and on cold winter days you could warm your hands and feet inside while waiting for the 191. The Miss Dixie restaurant use to be referred to as the Del back in those days, a great place to meet friends and enjoy good food. It's interesting to read everyone's comments , brings back happy times for me.

I lived at 997-46th Ave on the corner of Sir George Simpson from 1955 to 1967. I spent most of my time at Charlie's Restaurant along with all my friends like Kirk Hatcher, Ronnie Cordell, Ian Stark, Bruce Paterson and Des Hamilton. I still visit Charlie himself where he lives in Pt. Claire and myself and my wife will be going out to dinner with Charlie and his wife in the next couple of weeks. Charlie is 86 now and looks 60. He looks fantastic. The memories of living in Lachine and spending a great deal of time at Charlie's are the best memories a kid could have.

Hello there. It is nice to hear comments on my fathers store "Charlie's" I was 8 when it burned down on Dec 17 in 1970. I still have great memories and contacts still from that time.
