The Meat Rack

pic1960s pic1940s? Corner of Spring Garden Rd & South Park Street, outside the Lord Nelson Hotel. The low wall, on the left, was perfect for sitting on and was a cruising spot during the 1970's.

The coffee shop in the Lord Nelson was called Murray's Coffee Shop; it was like a diner. Across the street was the Doric Restaurant that was frequented by a large population of gay men.1
