Let's go for a ride in a Gloucester subway car.
I was just going to say "ahhhh, progressive times"
Here's the Gayety in 1911 (G. W. Gouinlock architect), just to the left of the Temple Building in foreground.
Not the same streetcar, unfortunately!
I miss the way the lights went out when the third rail was cut out! Great video and thanks to the poster of the video!
Stores on Pape at Lipton, 1927
IT's now the site of renovations to Pape subway station, Aug. 2013
The hidden Victorian building is also quite clear on Google Earth:
And it looks like the Victorian front was already gone by 1942:

Here are a couple of shots from my dad's old slides.
Not sure when or from what vantage point???
from Bank of Commerce Building observation deck?
When? Probably circa 1960. The Royal York already had its addition (and the 2 Carlton building already existed); yet the Gardiner didn't exist yet, and New City Hall still seems parking lot rather than construction site...
"When? Probably circa 1960."
And way off in the distance - The Imperial Oil Building.
IF only I had of questioned then, for the answers needed now . . .
