Posted:

Looking northwest towards the corner of The Queensway and Roncesvalles Ave, in Toronto’s Sunnyside neighbourhood.

The 1923 archive photo shows when the corner was home to the Sunnyside Restaurant. By the 1941 archive photo, the TTC Car House, the Sunnyside Bus Terminal with B & G Coffee Shop Milk Bar (today a McDonald’s restaurant) and the Edgewater Hotel (presently Hotel Shelter) had been constructed at the corner (Library and Archives Canada PA-054693 & City of Toronto Archives, Fonds 16, Series 71, Item 1979).
