Roncesvalles Ave and Queen St W in 1924 & 2023

Posted:

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

The archive photo shows the northwest corner surrounded by billboards. In the 1930s, the Sunnyside Bus Terminal (today home to McDonald’s) and the Edgewater Hotel (presently Hotel Shelter, previously Howard Johnson Inn) were constructed at the site.

The two-storey building at the northeast corner was designed by architect Frank Darling for the Imperial Bank in 1910. It’s currently a Burrito Boys restaurant.
