    Interesting to see that a swath of parking preceded Cumberland Terrace--indeed, it would seem that the S side of Cumberland was virtually all parking from Yonge all the way t/w Avenue Rd.

    Would this have related to B-D subway construction? Judging from the existence of the buildings SW corner Bay-Yorkville (now replaced by Minto) and Yonge-Belmont, this would seem like an early-mid-60s sort of photo (and is that construction/excavation E of Yonge, btw/Britnells and Royal Bank?)

    I imagine the parking has to be B/D subway related.

    I'm trying to remember when King was re-done. I'm thinking it was summer 2002.

    A TD bank branch. And, in its previous incarnation, it was the TD Bank headquarters. That would have been in the 1800's.

    Or actually, the Bank of Toronto. (Which merged with the Dominion Bank of Canada in 1954.)
