    Amazing change at Front & Yonge over nearly 100 years. This image may have been made about 1925, and possibly from, then-under-construction, Royal York Hotel. Union Station in bottom-right foreground.

    Thanks DSC for that wonderful link to Industries of Canada, where I found another image of St. Andrew's Church (here on the right). This is the present site of Roy Thomson Hall.

    Smably, Thanks for that answer about 147 Donlands. It confirms that my father may have been the original owner of our home. I still wonder what it cost him in 1930. I think some new homes were selling for about $2,000 in those days.

    Here's a challenge for Toronto's real estate historians. My first home was at 147 Donlands Ave., so I have a personal interest in its history. Can anyone answer these questions: - When was 147 built (c.1930?) and what was the original selling price? - Who were the first owners?

    This promo-photo of a proposed new development on King St. caught my attention because of the unique structure ("King Toronto Condo"). Can we expect that it'll look this magnificent if/when completed?

    Thanks to a curious observer and the enlightenment from a fine researcher. I expect many, like myself, had no idea of that 1861 change in street numbering.
