Queen St W and Chestnut St in 1955 & 2023

Posted:

April 3, 1955/2023 – Looking northeast along Queen St W, east of York St in downtown Toronto. In the archive photo, notice the Variety Hotel at Chestnut St (when it intersected with Queen St W). The block was demolished to make way for Nathan Phillips Square and Toronto City Hall. The clock tower of Old City Hall is in the background.
