Shuter St and Dalhousie St in 1972 & 2022

Posted:

Looking northeast towards the corner of Shuter St and Dalhousie St, in the Garden District of Toronto. The archive photo shows the Edward Cooper houses at 68 and 70 Shuter St and the Malcolm Gillespie houses at 64 to 66 Shuter St. Mr Cooper, a merchant, built his homes in 1850.

Architect John Tully designed them in the Georgian Revival style. His family owned the houses for nearly seven decades. Mr Gillespie built his houses adjoining to the west in 1851. After he passed away in 1892, his widow added Romanesque Revival-style elements to the facades. The residences later became boarding houses, then in the 1970s, were extensively modified for commercial purposes. In 2014, the houses were dismantled. Today the heritage façades of Edward Cooper’s houses were incorporated into the present-day condo tower.
