In 1975 Sid Slade moved these Victoria motel units onto his land(Greg and Toglia’s now across from the co-op)without consulting with any government authority. His intention, to start a motel on Hornby was thwarted from the start. The units remained there for years gradually disintegrating . Eventually he managed to sell a few. You can still see them up Slade Road. The last one burned down in the eighties. Some say it was squatters that lit the match.
