Queen East at Woodbine

Pushing it back another 23 years: Woodbine Avenue, looking north from Queen East (1955). Image: City of Toronto Archives, Fonds 220, Series 65, File 123, Item 4.

At the beginning of the year, I ran a then and now of Queen East and Woodbine from 1972 to the (near) present. While browsing the City of Toronto Archives’ database, I landed on this one of the same view from 1955/56.

If you look at all three of the images, the apartment building to the right has been a feature of the corner for around several decades.
