^I downloaded quite a few of these pics during my break today and showed them to my kids. They couldn't believe that was Bathurst! Good discussion afterwards about how things have changed in the last hundred years.

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

you can make out the Shuter St Street sign
