Queen and James/Then and Now

Looking east along Queen Street at James circa 1910.
Another good shot of the Adams Furniture Store building.
This entire block was demolished prior to construction of the Eaton Center.
An ad from 1910.
A few pages from their 1910 catalogue.

A real Stickley chair today is worth about about $2500.
Linoleum "carpets" were quite popular back then and are extremely rare these days.
