Then. "Prest-o-lite Building." Northeast corner of Elm and Centre, circa 1919.

Now. July 2011. Elm still exists of course, but Centre now ends a block to the south. Various university and Sick Kids hospital buildings have eliminated our intersection, as well as this old manufacturing plant. Prest-o-lite is still in the automotive electrics business — I haven't researched it but I wonder if they still have Canadian-based manufacturing? The present building looks to be about 50 years old.
