Then. October 18, 1911. Adelaide and Bay; looking east across Bay along Adelaide. A photographic panorama of Toronto workaday life and detail frozen across the unfathomable gulf of time. Yes, I know, UrbanToronto might do well to seek a professional writer to craft better prose to accompany these old pictures; but in the meantime, I'm it. : )

I'm also wondering if the arcane knowledge to construct those streetcar track interchanges is passed down through some sort of secret ceremony.
