University and Dundas/Then and Now

The S/E corner of Dundas and University as seen in 1937. This had been a row of workers cottages dating back to the 1840's or so.
A few years later in 1940 and the house to the south has been demolished.
The same intersection today.

These houses were a little further south on the east side of University. They're all made of wood and stucco without basements.
It looks like this today.
A little further north was Mary Pickford's house.
An early postcard from the Chuckman Collection.
Mary Pickford's parents owned a theatre at Spadina and Queen.
