Hello, I was so happy to find your site!
I have childhood memories of going to an Automat in Union Station in Toronto (late 60's early 70's). I told many people about the interesting resturant that my mother and aunt's took me too on a childhood visit to the "big city" - but no one could remember such a resturant. I finally saw something on television about the Automat and was quite thrilled to have a name for the resturant! However, I have not been able to find any information about an Automat in Union Station and no one I mention "Automat" to has any idea what I am talking about... not sure if you can help - but I appreciate your time. I am certainly going to buy your book!

Thanks for writing- I am not aware of Automats in Toronto but I will investigate.

Just checking back to see if there was any info regarding my earlier posting... I have since acquired a copy of your book (which I LOVE!) and am looking forward to one day solving the mystery of the Toronto Automat! :o)

I know that Horn & Hardart tried to start up automats in Chicago and Boston but I have not found anything about restaurants in Canada. My family has some annual reports from the 60's and 70's- I'll see if I can find a mention there.
