Ossington My Ossington - 3
imageAt that time, in the late nineties, you didn’t really go too far south on Ossington. Halfway south was far enough. That got you past the seedy strip club (is there any other kind?) to the sprawling hardware store and the garage/car wash where they fixed and washed my Chevy. After that, Vietnamese karoake bars with dark windows mixed with warehouses dedicated to the selling of vats of grape juice to facilitate the local habit of making homemade wine. Then a crypt- like detox centre from which no one ever left. An occasionally operating rat infested hotel/heavy metal club. And the Mental Health Centre – whose dark sprawling campus gave safe haven to not only the ill but also the drunk, the homeless, the addicts and the prostitutes.
