Brock Avenue Corner Store/Then and Now

Another lost corner store at the S/E corner of Brock and Muir.

Queen and Cowan/Then and Now

When the original Parkdale Council Hall was demolished in 1931 a modern police station was built on the site. A few photos documenting the progress.
No longer a police station the building is now used as an artist's co-op, Gallery 1313.

Dundas and Howard Park/Then and Now

The TTC has been very good at documenting their work over the years. The photos tend to concentrate on the track details but there's usually enough information in the background to make them interesting. Here's a series of photos of the track replacement at the intersection of Dundas and Howard Park taken in the fall of 1935.
