Charlie’s Motel

“Charlie’s Motel – Britannia Heights, Ontario”

Promoted as being in “Britannia Heights”, Charlies Motel was actually on Hwy 17, at or near 695 Robertson Rd slightly east of where it intersects Eagleson Rd, ie on the other side of Bells Corners and not in or even that near Britannia at all.

This rather casual use of “Britannia Heights” as presumably the nearest significant community seems to have been done from the roughly 1930s to the 1950s.
