And, of course, City Hall was the heart of downtown in those days -- long before we had the glam and glitter of Dundas Square (he said with tongue-in-cheek).

missing section of Floyd Ave in 1960.jpg
Missing section of Floyd Ave in 1960. An entire block of houses bounded by Gowan, Floyd, Logan & Carlaw Avenues demolished in 1958 for new school construction north of the existing Westwood Junior High (aka Hartman Jones Memorial School).

Funny how the front of City Hall once served as a kind of incipient Toronto answer to Times Square/Piccadilly. I guess the last vestige of that was the Beneficial Loans sign that looked north on Bay until the late 60s...
Even more so when the east side of the "square" was framed by Eaton's:

Would any politician today allow a photographer to expose his book titles (Lenin, Stalin, Marx)?
