A building I've walked by many times (NW corner of Richmond West and Tecumseth) and wondered about how odd it looks today. Finding this pic on the TPS site shows the original design (the Memorial Baptist Church 1897), albeit needing some TLC in 1957. Would love to see the original details brought back.

It seems to have survived its underpinning. Unsplit single phase power snuck i through the transom window.

The corner of Richmond Street West and Maud, looking SE.

1921. The old St. Andrew's Market, which would be demolished in 1932, replaced by a new municipal building called the Waterworks Building:
