Albert St and Bay St in 1913 & 2022

Posted:

Looking south from Albert St and Terauley St (present-day Bay St) towards Queen St W. Did you know that Bay St, between Queen St W and College St, was previously known as Terauley St?

In 1797, Dr James Macaulay, a former army surgeon for the Queen’s Rangers, was granted several acres of land in the area west of Yonge St and north of Queen St W from the Crown. His residence was called Teraulay Cottage. Notice Old City Hall in both photos on the left.
