Jahn's is no more

After 110 years Jahn's Ice Cream is closing up shop. This was their last day. I've been taking my kids here once a month or so for many years now and I have been a regular since I moved to Kew Gardens as a kid in 1972. I've always loved their ice cream and, especially, their amusing menu. Ever order a Kitchen Sink or a Boiler Maker? Fun stuff. Jahn's was one of the few remaining links to the glory days of nineteenth century Richmond Hill. It never really changed. The carved up wooden walls, the marble counters, the converted gas lights, the coin-operated player piano, the period art and antiques, it is all still there. My kids loved watching that old piano light up and play a song by itself. I spoke to the owner who said that after 18 years, they just couldn't make it here anymore. Such is life I guess but I am really going to miss the place. The antique fixtures were purchased in bulk by someone who is restoring a period ice cream shop somewhere in the mid-west. I did manage to buy a few of the menus though. I might get one framed. The pictures above were taken as some of the items were being packed up for shipment. I'm glad the kids and I got one more sundae and a chance to see the old place off. Sniff....
