    You can look at all of these online in the City of Toronto archives.

    So trippy....this is the house where I live today, back in 1927!!!! (the forward one on the right)

    This stretch of College between Havelock and Gladstone looks pretty much the same. I'm sure those of you who live in the hood would agree!

    you see a lot of buildings around Toronto that have lost their 'caps' - usually due to a fire at some point.
