    Then. N.E. corner of Yonge and Gerrard. July 7, 1938.





    Now. June 2014. I wouldn't call this corner of Gerrard just a few feet E of Yonge iconic; but the way gas was sold back in the day - sidewalk at roadside - is what attracted me to the Then picture.

    Yes, certainly when compared to that neighbourhood today.

    Upon review of those pix, I realized that I placed them out of order.
    The second photo is the oldest, 1880s.
    The upper-floor windows do not appear until later - that first photo is dated c.1900

    Tamblyn is long gone, of course, but you can still see the name on the wall around the corner on Davenport:

    There are a few old photos of the Danforth neighbourhood in the Black Swan tavern, one looking east from Broadview pre-Viaduct.
