Baldwin Steps in 1913 & 2020

Posted:

Looking north towards the Baldwin Steps from Spadina Rd and Davenport Rd in the Casa Loma and Dupont by the Castle neighbourhoods of Toronto. The staircase in the archive photo was constructed in 1913 to replace wooden steps.

The Baldwin Steps we know today were rebuilt and officially opened in 1988. Made of concrete, they rise to a circular landing flanked by retaining walls and pillars and contain a small amphitheatre. 110 steps zigzag from landing to landing up the steep hill, all surrounded by beautiful trees, plants and flowers.
