The Sign of the Pineapple
I took a bunch of reference photos in Niagara-on-the-Lake a couple of years ago, with the intention of putting together a panorama of Queen Street. It never happened so I thought I might as well use some of them for studies at least.
For as long as I can remember this store has been called "The Owl and the Pussycat", but I have it on good authority that it used to be "The Sign of the Pineapple", for fairly obvious reasons. I am not sure what is the origin of the pineapple, but it is a lovely old building dating from the early 19th century.
