Then: A typical midtown Yonge Street photo of the 1980s. A couple of "walk-up" apartment buildings on the left. In the right distance, the OHIP building at Yonge and Eglinton (with the large elevator machine room on top).

Now: April 2011. The OHIP building has been replaced by the very tall Minto Midtown Quantum Towers condominiums. Our walk-ups have disappeared, too.
