    Few pics from the fire that occurred on this site today. Toronto fire says the block that went up was still under construction and thankfully no occupants. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/large-townhouse-fire-downsview-park-smoke-toronto-1.5830062

    The realignment serves no purpose, other than opening up park space for development. So many other plots along Kingston that would be far more worthy of redevelopment. The city should be ashamed if they even consider this for more than a second.

    Evocative Images of Lost Toronto

    Very little online, except for this one NY Times article that talks about the financial fall out when the deal got canceled. https://www.nytimes.com/1982/03/30/business/gm-canada-files-insurance-claim.html But without firing up the old microfiche machine - I’m leaving the rest to bar room...

    Toronto | 1795 Danforth | 23m | 7s | CS&P

    https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/quick-thinking-resident-leads-neighbours-to-safety/article957048/ Interesting article on why the former building was knocked down... Looking at a 2007 Streetview you can see the two main floor units were occupied by same tavern. I bet someone though...
