in Canada as Horne's Restaurants, LTD. only three locations
were built. Each featured a standard building topped with
an eye-catching yellow roof, Circus Grille, Candy Shoppe,
and filling station. The move into Canada was part of
Greyhound's (owner of Horne's during the 1960s) plan to
expand Horne's reach, and at the time Ontario seemed to
be a logical place of growth since the province (and much
of Canada for that matter) hardly appeared foreign. In
fact, the border was more or less porous and history as
well as cultural values connected the United States and
Canada much more closely than today.
Horne's locations in Ontario likely did not last long,
and by the later 1970s had ceased to exist.
Either Trenton or West Lorne, the Horne's in the postcard
showed that it catered to truckers as well as motorists.
