The Flamingo Restaurant opened on Sept.16th. 1959. It was the first Diningroom style restaurant in Halifax with tablecloths. A couple of years later The Tropical Lounge was the first licensed Lounge in Halifax,the second in Nova Scotia,

What is the date of the above photo?

I grew-up in Fairview, and I ate there fairly often with my family (1970s to 1983); the restaurant was demolished when the Bayers Road Shopping Centre was massively renovated in 1984.

There was a seperate dining room downstairs (with its own entrance off of Desmond Avenue) that could be booked for special events. My Grandparents had their 50th Wedding Anniversary party there in September 1982.

I don't have the date for it, but circa 1967 can't be far wrong.
