Is there a date for this pic BTW?

Look at the text at the top right of the picture, this was taken during the war, April 1943.

I think it was called Bar 82, and always seemed to be popular howf. It remained in use until the mid 80s before the concert hall was built. Was this the same one as in the picture, or was it another? If you walked straight south from the new bus station, across the car parks where Parliamentary road was previously, heading straight down Dundas St heading for Queen St Stn, you'd pass it on your left. I was never in it (I was a teenager at the time), but it always looked a real old fashioned joint. Anyone else remember it?
