    I wonder if the underground public restroom is still buried under the sidewalk or was it filled in?

    It would be cool if it's still under there along with the fixtures. Near the Greenwich Museum in London there is an underground public toilet that must date back to Victorian times; original fixtures; still in everyday use.

    That thing over the street? It bridged the N and S St. Lawrence Markets. The bridge was taken down about 1954; N St. Lawrence followed suit about a decade and a half later...

    Did it have some use beyond being a canopy?

    Looking north up Yonge towards Observatory Lane, Richmond Hill. This is just north of 16th Ave, across the road from Hillcrest mall.




    Guess the closest main intersection. Queen and ???? If you do, you will win... My respect.




    Lakeshore looking west from Bathurst. In the modern perspective I am about 1/2 way inside that lineup.




    The old Maple Leaf Stadium

    I wonder if the cinema is still intact at that location? It still looks similar from the exterior.

    That picture of Observatory Lane is amazing! Especially since I live just to the other side of Yonge down Baif.

    Thanks Mustapha!

    I was in there on an Art walk a few years ago....it looks like they gutted anything resembling a cinema on the inside.

    I notice they refaced that little building with grey stone too. Last time I walked by its brick surface was in shambles, and looked as if it was going to fall on my head.

    I always wondered why the subway yard was pushed into Davisville when they had all sorts of empty land south of Union.
