a reminder of ontario's old drinking laws

Ladies & Escorts
Once upon a time, Ontario's alcohol regulations stipulated that bars were split into separate rooms for men and women, though the odd "escort" was allowed with the ladies. Though these rules evaporated by the 1970s, traces may found in older watering holes that kept the signs for decorative use.

Amy and I found this well-preserved example on a recent roam around Windsor, at the Victoria Tavern in Walkerville.
