Chinatown Duplex

This duplex on Huron Street north of Sullivan retains much of it's original charm and detail.
Similar to the old house on Peter Street seen here.

Remuddling/A Tale of Two Houses

These two houses are just off of Davenport near Symington. The top one remains quite original while it's reversed twin below has been modified substantially with unpleasant results.

Yonge and Edward/Then and Now

The S/W corner of Yonge and Edward from 1929. Note the painted sign for Sunflower Wallpapers.
2011 and nothing remains.

Broadview and Gerrard/Then and Now

The south side of Gerrard east of Broadview as it was in 1960. I don't know what the Palladium was....It appears to be an old bank.

Adelaide West/Then and Now

Another block of worker's cottages that are no longer there. this photo is from 1937.

Bay Street/Then

A nice shot of Bay Street looking north towards old City Hall in the late 1940's. The Ticker Tape Coffee Shop and Soda Bar looks like the kind of place I'd frequent..
