    I may be wrong about this, but I think the SR was a) at shuter and yonge, and b) the first post-prohibition licensed establishment in toronto

    Lol, that was funny a little further south though. Looking at where the Imperial is I would assume this photo is at shuter and young st. and that building is still standing. the buildings on the left is where the Eaton centre stands today.

    Wooden roads due to construction of subway
