Scope and Content
View of the beach and Hopkins Casino, Port Stanley, ca. 1920. The penny arcade with various amusements including a carousel, and the London and Port Stanley Railway Cafeteria and Bath House (opened in 1917) are visible in the background to the west (left) of the Casino. The London and Port Stanley Railway Dance Pavilion (later known as the Stork Club), which was opened in July, 1926, is not visible, so this photograph pre-dates 1926. A label affixed to the back of the copy print reads: "In 1908, James Hopkins, in connection with several investors, purchased the bath house owned by Thomas Hough at the end of William St. and erected the Port Stanley Beach Casino. It was one of the most successful ventures ever undertaken in the village & could boast having the largest ballroom in Canada until 1926. The photo here shows the last edition of the casino as it appeared in the 1920s. To the left is the penny arcade." The casino was enlarged several times before it was destroyed by fire in April, 1932.

Hopkins Casino dance hall, Port Stanley, ca. 1925. Constructed in 1909 and officially opened on July 1, 1909 under its original name, the Stanley Beach Casino. Later purchased by St. Thomas photographer James H. Hopkins and renamed.

Stanley Beach Casino dance hall, Port Stanley, ca. 1910. Constructed in 1909 and officially opened on July 1, 1909 under its original name. Later purchased by St. Thomas photographer James H. Hopkins and renamed Hopkins Casino. Prior to the construction of the London & Port Stanley Railway Dance Pavilion (later known as the Stork Club) in 1926, the Casino was the largest summer dance hall in Canada. When Hopkins Casino was destroyed by fire in April, 1932, it is said that the flames could be seen from across Lake Erie in Cleveland, Ohio. The Orion Hotel, constructed 1907-1908, is visible in the background: the building still stands on the west side of William Street, Port Stanley, opposite Lotis Lane and has been in use recently as a residential outpatient clinic for patients of the St. Thomas Psychiatric Hospital. Note the ferris wheel to the east (right) of the Casino - it was built at the same time as the Casino as an attraction and was one of the earliest functioning ferris wheels in Canada (the first in the world was introduced at the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893).
