Laplante Ave and Gerrard St W in 1972 & 2023

Posted:

Looking south from Laplante Ave towards Gerrard St W, just west of Bay St in downtown Toronto. Notice the back of the Benjamin Johnson House built in 1875 on the left, now Jimmy’s Coffee. In the background of the archive photo is the 137 m or 450 ft cooling tower of the Enwave Energy Corporation – Walton Street Steam Plant, which generates heat for the adjacent hospitals.
