Dundas and Burnhamthorpe/Then and Now

The north side of Dundas just east of Burnhamthorpe when it was Hopkin's General Store.
Hopkin's again on the left.
 The house remains as seen in this photo dated 1958.
It was refaced at some point and I recall it as a Chinese restaurant in the 1970's.
 The house can also bee seen here in 1955.
The building remained standing until about 10 years ago when it was demolished to make room for this....
Another later version of the store that may have been on the south side of the street. 


  1. just a brief comment, cant be ten years ago, I used to goto Spies whch was a little bar right there and that was 20 years ago, nothing has changed since then except for the businesses but not the structures. That old house was waaaaay long gone many years ago

  2. check this photo, its labeled 1958:

  3. Good detective work on that photo. I will add it the the post.
