How Buildings Learn/ The Ryrie Building/Silver Rail

The N/E corner of Yonge and Shuter in 1913. The Ryrie Building (1891) is seen before the
additions that extended the structure south to the corner and the addition of another floor.
Architects drawing showing the proposed changes.
The realization. Not quite as decorative as the plan.
A few years later.
Sometime in the 1930's when Muirhead's Grill occupied the S/E corner
The 1950's when the Silver Rail occupied the space. The cornice is
already gone at this point.
