King and Sherbourne/Then and Now

The S/E corner of king and Sherbourne sometime in the 1940's when it was the National Hotel.

Lakeshore and Parkside/Then and Now

An early shot looking west on Lakeshore at the Parkside Drive Underpass in 1913.
Again in 2010. This is another good example of the amount of reclaimed land along the Lakeshore through infill over the last ninety plus years.
A composite of the two photos.

Welcome to Toronto/1928

Looking east across the old Humber Bridge and the official entry point into the city in the fall of 1928. Population 778,498. I can't really do a now photo as the landscape has been altered so dramatically in the last eighty years or so. But still a good image.
An earlier postcard from Chuckman a little further west looking back at the bridge.
