Dundas and Roncesvalles/Then and Now

The intersection of Dundas and Roncesvalles in 1912.
Toronto's infamous Boyd Gang started their crime spree by robbing this branch of the Bank of Montreal in November of 1951.
2010 and the bank is now a Starbucks.... how can people drink this much overpriced coffee?
The bank also served as the location for Mr. Pinky's Hefty Hideaway for the film Hairspray.

An interview with Edwin Boyd after his release and be found here.
