Eastern and Trinity/Then and Then

These two photos, only a few tears apart show that some improvements were made to this building on orders from the city.

Queen and Yonge/Then and Now

A publicity stunt outside the Colonial Tavern on Yonge St. I would guess the early 1960's.

A good shot of Yonge Street in the early 1980's showing the famous Colonial Tavern.
Demolished a short time later. The bank on the left was designed by E.J. Lennox.
The bank still stands.

Another photo stitch of the west side of Yonge north of Elm in the winter of 1950.
Dominion Regalia (As seen above) is still in business and supplies flags as well as Masonic Regalia.....

Yonge and Gerrard/Then

The west side of Yonge from Gerrard up to Hayter and Eaton's College store in 1950.
I think these were documented prior to the subway construction to monitor any damage to the the building as construction progressed. It's interesting to note that there was another Kresge's on the opposite side of the street one block north (see previous post)
click on the panorama for a better view.I would like to have lunch at Charlie's restaurant.
