Toronto Then and Now: Bay and Adelaide Streets

Then

Now

One thing I find surprising about these then and now photos, is that there always seems to be more people in the "then" photos.

The 1940 photo of Bay and Adelaide streets comes from the City of Toronto Archives; the 2009 photo is by Stephen M.
