Avenue and Davenport/Then and Now

The S/W corner of Avenue Road and Davenport in the early 1960's. A good example of a converted house and corner drug store. Note the Loblaws to the left.
2010 and not too much has changed.
This recent photo reveals the painted over Tamblyn sign on the north face of the building as well as the filled in round windows.
The west side a little further south.

KIng Street West/Then and Now

From 1925, this elegant apartment building is under construction on King Street at Beaty Avenue. At the time living in an apartment was considered quite grand.
