Exploring History: The Queenston Heights Restaurant
The Queenston Heights Restaurant, as shown in a postcard from circa 1910.

This postcard from circa 1910 shows what the former Queenston Heights Restaurant looked like. In the background, there is a sign off to the left that shows the direction to the dining room. What we’re seeing here is likely a café where visitors could enjoy a quick bite. Tapping into the very British history of Queenston Heights, the owners have draped British flags throughout the space. Visitors could sit and enjoy refreshments while taking in the stunning view of the Niagara River. This postcard was printed by F.H. Leslie, who was known to print and sell many local postcards during this period.
