    DSC, that sure is a unique house. Open the door and you are on the city sidewalk.

    Hello, while not a Then and Now, I hope you enjoy this picture of Wallace Market on Symington Ave. I think the 'patina' is a delight for the eye. I hope they take down that fencing soon; I'll go re-shoot it.

    Another Then and Now of the southeast corner of Huron and College. 'Then' was 2015, 'Now' was about a week ago. I should have taken the Then pic in colour and had the option to convert it to black and white... The new building is a homage to the old one - the old one was demolished.

    Then and Now. 677 Bloor West. I took the Then picture in 2010 or thereabouts. The 'Metro' theater had already closed. Now picture taken today. 'Basecamp Climbing' is located there now.

    Good article, Northern Light, thank you. I'll just add (unmentioned in the article) that the 'Richford Arms" in Erie PA, is a 2/3's scale former 'Ford Hotel' and still exists.

    Then and Now of a sorts. We are looking at a old postcard of the Ford Hotel that used to be on the northeast corner of Bay and Dundas. I don't think too many of us can relate to the Ford Hotel but the 'Atrium' building there now is a nice bit of 70s office, shopping and food court space...

    Very cool! Could that be the same large tree in both pictures?

    Goldie, your signature look all over this picture. Which city and when were you there?

    College and Huron SE corner again. I forgot this particular 'Then' [May 2015 I think], it was on my laptop. The condo builders here perhaps sought to give the impression of an old facade saved, or a street level in tune with the neighborhood, but in fact the original building was demolished.

    Then, SE corner College and Huron, June 2015. Now,.. was today actually. I was going to wait for the construction to finish and a business to go in but they've been working on this place in slow mo and who knows when a business will establish there. It only appears that they saved the facade...

    Pape and Gamble near the SW corner. Old sign hidden by removed newer signage comes to light.

    officedweller's post.. that picture of the lobby reminds me how far along colour photography has come. Back in the day it seems that colour film was only good outdoors on a sunny day.
