    Wonder if this was one of the fakes ?????
    Or these?















    These two are listed as "composites":

    The 2nd & the last one look fake. Judging by all the people on the rooftops, the others look real.

    I certainly agree, androiduk. They don't pass the "photoshop" test!

    In those days it was literally, 'cut & paste.'

    My father shot this parade during the 1920s - I think it's crossing the Danforth/Bloor Viaduct.

    This is Yonge looking north, just south of Wellington. (CORRECTED) - date unknown.

    It's Yonge looking north, just south of Wellington. Was this one of your dad's pics, Goldie?

    Yes it was - I've been scanning some of his 4x6 negatives from the old Kodak Autographic camera.
    Thanks for the info.

    I know this picture is from the first page of the thread..and someone has probably already had this exact same mini-rant....but being the only decent picture i have seen of this building, im stunned.... Its just as stunning as the Toronto Star building was. I LOVE tall buildings but its a damn shame that the globe and star buildings....the 2 finest office buildings in toronto history IMO (both tied with commerce court north) were both knocked down for the fcp complex. Dont get me wrong i love FCP and the exchange tower. 298 meters plus another 146 is hard to argue with, but its too bad the facades werent preserved at least...

    A few of the sculptural panels from the old Globe Building (see attached) have been preserved and are on display at the Guild Inn.

    Yes I remember reading that on wiki. The sculptural panels were indeed preserved but the streamline-moderne/art-deco Facade should have been preserved as a whole.... I cant blame them though, it was the 70's and i guess the optimism of a project of such magnitude (FCP and exchange tower) stopped the naysayers from having much impact

    Here's the original rendering. Perhaps the new G & M building to be built at Spadina and Front amy want to re-create this?

    I hope so, but I bet it'll be another glass cube.
