Exploring Photos with the NOTL Museum: Lions Beach refreshment stand

Here’s the Lions Club refreshment stand and change room at Lions Beach in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Many people would recognize this today as Queen’s Royal Park at the end of King Street, with 26 Queen St. visible in the background. The beach was always a popular spot for locals to cool off during the summer. Many young people would spend the whole day at the beach, perhaps freezing in the early morning swim lessons, scarfing down some fries with vinegar and ketchup, jumping in the waves created by the S.S. Cayuga passing by and capping it all off with a swig of water from the spring at the corner of King and Delater streets.
