Yonge St north of Charles St in 1938 & 2022

Posted:

Looking northeast on Yonge St from Charles St, straddling the Bay-Cloverhill and Church-Wellesley neighbourhoods of Toronto.

The building in the foreground on the right is Postal Station F. Built in 1905, the heritage-designated Edwardian-style structure was designed by architect David Ewart. Today, the former post office is home to commercial space.

In the archive photo, the light grey three-storey building a few doors up from the post office was constructed circa 1889. Over the building’s history, it has housed various businesses, including a lamp store, drug store, cigar shop, and art gallery. In 1949, it became the Brass Rail Tavern.
