Toronto Then and Now: Union Station and the Royal York Hotel

Then
Yonge and Front Union Station 1954
Outside Union Station, Yonge and Front streets. (1954)

Now
Yonge and Front Union Station 2009

In 1959, an eastern wing was added to the Royal York Hotel. I wasn't aware of the addition when I went to recreate this photo, and at first I was puzzled when I couldn't seem to line up my shot.

The 1954 photo of Yonge and Front streets comes from the City of Toronto Archives; the 2009 photo is by Stephen M.
