Did this ‘Lunch House’ serve lunch? Here is an interesting ad printed in the British Colonist August 15, 1860:
Between Waddington Alley and Wharf Street,
Board and Lodging Reduced to $5.00 per week
Boarders to furnish their own Bedding.
Single meals……….37 ½ cents.
Provisions having fallen considerably, the Proprietor is enabled to make the above reduction without injury to the table.
An experienced Cook is engaged.
Epicures are invited to call.
