Weston Road and Gunn Road/Then and Now

What is the story of this building on Weston Road at Gunn? I suspect that it's an old inn but have no proof...It's beem ABC lumber since I can remember but it's shape and location would lead me to believe it was built as a half way house.
Seen here in 1920 or so.

Weston Road and John/Then and Now

The N/E corner of Weston Road and John Street in 1906. When a Bank of British North America branch was being constructed.
