Roncesvalles Ave, Queen St W in 1923 & 2023

Posted:

Looking east towards the intersection of Roncesvalles Ave, Queen St W, The Queensway and King St W, in the Sunnyside and Parkdale neighbourhoods of Toronto.

A few points of interest in both photos are the building currently home to Burrito Boys, built in 1910. Architect Frank Darling designed it for the Imperial Bank and, in 2020, was listed on the city’s heritage register as part of the Parkdale Main Street Heritage Conservation District.

Also, notice the building on the right. It was constructed circa 1885 and originally Scholes Hotel, later the Ocean House. Today, it’s used for residential and commercial purposes and was given heritage status in 1989 (City of Toronto Archives, Fonds 16, Series 71, Item 1978).
