The drive through between Oak and Main streets in North Bay hosts a lot of history. Dave Dale photo

There's a lot of history in this sign and the old drive-through connecting Oak and Main Streets with a series of taxi, delivery and other businesses setting up shop.

One of the first posts under the photo on the Facebook Group for A Bit of the Bay was the Tim Horton's commercial shot here, with 'Shorty' a top-notch curlng ice maker. See it HERE.
