(#20) 615-627 Yates Street

615-627 Yates StreetIn 1907, the streetcar passed by Dean and Hiscocks – druggists, Adams Edwards – stationery, F. P. Watson – grocer, the Hotel Davies, and the Poodle Dog Restaurant.  By 1912, 615 Yates was the home of the Delhi Cafe. By 1921, it was again the hone to the Poodle Dog Cafe, this time under the ownership of Frank E. Graham and Joseph Chamberlain.
They sold to H. A. W. Beer who moved the business to 706 Yates. The Poodle Dog Restaurant moved to the corner of Government and Yates (1239-1245 Government) in 1948 and was very popular in that location until the 1970s.

The buildings at 615-627 Yates Street were destroyed by fire in the last part of the 20th century and a new building was erected on the site.
