Posted:

Looking southwest from Yonge St and Hayden St, straddling the Bay-Cloverhill and Church-Wellesley neighbourhoods of Toronto. In both photos, in the centre background, notice the Robert Barron Building. Built in 1889, the structure originally housed R Barron Groceries, later a Dominion Food Market and by the late-1940s, Coles Books. Since the mid-1990s, the heritage-designated building has been home to Shoppers Drug Mart, located at 728 Yonge St and Charles St W.
