Then. Agnes Street Church. Bay and Agnes. (Agnes was the precursor to Dundas.) Northeast corner, 1899. Before the Ford Hotel, itself long bitten-the-dust there was this handsome church. It's poignant to think that the history of older buildings can only be recalled as images, and yet compared to cities in the Old World (your choice of "Old World," dear UT-ers), many of our buildings had the briefest of lives. In 1909, our church became the Lyric Theatre.
