    Evocative Images of Lost Toronto

    Correct location, but Wilson wouldn't exist until the early 1970's. This was the same time that York Mills Rd was re-reouted North. The building is gone in this photo, but the transformer station remains.

    That picture was likely taken between Feb and July 1931. The A.R. Williams building (middle left of your image), was completely demolished by July 6, 1931.

    Sometimes it can be quite funny... I never realized how similar the Toronto Island Gibralter Point Lighthouse is to the one on the Island of Gibraltar :) https://mysteriesofcanada.com/ontario/gibraltar-point-lighthouse/

    When is this?

    Possibly 1976-1978. The CN tower is finished and Roy Thomson Hall is just a parking lot. (construction started mid-78). Oddly it also shows a complete Cadillac Fairview Tower? (1981)

    The original photos show a taken date of September 19, 1899, and make a slightly wider panorama. 1899%20Toronto%20Lighthouse%20-%20Looking%20East%20by%20A%20Stitch%20in%20Time,%20on%20Flickr'][/URL]...

    Maybe 1924 or even 1923? From October 1925: The bypass bridge for the Bay St. underpass is almost complete. Its Southern end would be the field those people are playing soccer? in.

    Didn't the electric buses continue further North to the Roe Loop? Was that still an additional fare?

    I'm not sure about the washroom, it used to be a turn around for the electric trolley buses that ran down Avenue Rd.

    1923 - Looking Southeast towards the old Hunt Club. I believe the communications tower was installed in the late 60's early 70's. Roughly 1930 - Looking North up Avenue Rd.

    Prior to the 1930 tower there was a standpipe. The base of the standpipe and the 1930 tower look similar, I wonder if they just added the upper storage section and lattice support? Looking Southeast. TPL

    Best guess would be Yonge St just below Queen looking South to Richmond. The building on the left with the spires was around on into the 1930's
