Toronto Then and Now: Museum Station

Then

Now

It's a shame that the TTC scrapped its old art-deco style signs; they looked great, and had a dramatic flair that was similar to the Paris Metro.

The 1963 photo of the Museum Station entrance comes from the City of Toronto Archives; the 2009 photo is by Stephen M.

It is so nice and amazing to view these two scenes! I think the photos were taken by the same person. No? What are the dates?
