    East of this, west of that
    The Grand Opera House was supposedly demolished in 1927, so that photo may be earlier than 1928. Interesting photo from the post-Ambrose Small disappearance, when many Torontonians of the day would have viewed this theatre as having a bad reputation.

    Interesting that Yonge seems to have ended at Front or The Esplanade. (The area at the Toronto Wholesale Fruit Market : formerly the Great Western Railway Co. of Canada terminal, is shown here, it can be seen in Goldie's photo and was at north-east corner of Yonge and The Esplanade, where the L-Tower now is.

    yonge-sewer 1928.

    Yes DSC........ Yonge St. ended just S. of the Esplanade and RR tracks.
    The waterfront and wharfs were at the end of Yonge as can be seen in this 1903 image (looking S. on Yonge from Front).
    TN Yonge St. towards wharf from Front 1903.

    Toronto Postal Delivery Building (built 1941) ……photo 1944
    Toronto Postal Delivery Building 1944.

    Postal building and Royal York barely visible in this 2013 photo.
    With a new addition (1999), the Postal Bldg. became Air Canada Centre and will soon be named (July 1, 2018), Scotiabank Arena.
    old postal-ACC 2013.

    And to those confused by the modern photos, the Wood Gundy façade was moved from King to Adelaide on behalf of Scotia Plaza in the 80s.
