Thanks to Jean Sabourin’s mums scrapbook I found an ad for one of my favourite restaurants no longer there.. Any memories add in the comments.. so I can document it. Thank you…
My parents owned The old bank cafe but that’s gone too.
My friends from Kinston 40 years ago visited the bank café and thought it was named after the river bank.
I explained it was the Bank of Nova Scotia. I am still banking with the same brand. And it was there that Bob Neilson bought the winning Olympic lottery ticket in 1972 that paid back a million dollars for a ten dollar ticket. I bought a ticket for the same cause at the same place
It was the Old Bank Bakery cafe before that. My Mom and sister both worked there as second jobs. First for Linda Dow and then for Mike and Marlene. Oh and before it was the cafe my Mom and sister and myself when I had to lol cleaned the Bank .
I worked here all through High School! Many fond memories of Steve and Lena! And lots of stories that still make me laugh ‘till this day!!
Fond memories at the Old Bank Cafe. Mavis and Cathy Johnson worked there.
My daughter started working for Steve and Lena when she was 13. She was just talking about them a couple of weeks ago when home for a visit.
