Traffic on Bay St. 1964 TPL

Notice the TCA (Trans Canada Airlines) logo on the left--a year later it became Air Canada, and changed it livery to this...

Established in London, England in 1830, Crosse and Blackwell Ltd., manufacturers of food products, built this factory and office in Toronto c.1926.
Seen in the background of the previous photo (above) at the corner of Lakeshore Blvd. and Bathurst.

The portico triggered my memory. At least they kept a piece of it. Rogers now? I can't recall what it used to be in the recent past.

The mens' lavatory at Toronto & Adelaide Streets, circa 1900. With a tower lovingly crafted from corrugated iron, men descended down stairs to use the facilities below. The facilities were kept by an attendant, a former waiter (TPL).

Confederation Life building is there, but Massey Hall isn't. My guess is 1893.
Wouldn't that pale gabled thing to the right of Confederation Life be Massey Hall?

Also of note: the party-wall back of EJ Lennox's long-gone proto-skyscraper Beard Building at King & Jarvis. (Back when I first saw this image in one of Mike Filey's early books, I was wondering what that tall thing was.)
