Despite the recent backpeddling by the Société de Développement Angus, the Montreal Pool Room building was sold March 3rd. One certainly can’t blame the owners for accepting a cool million (three times the building’s last valuation) and moving shop across the street.
The old Montreal Pool Room building was constructed in 1889, shortly before the Monument National, and was originally used as a hardware store. It has housed the hot dog joint since at last 1924.
