Sam the Record Man in 2007 & 2022

Posted:

Looking northeast from Yonge St, just north of Gould St in the Downtown Yonge area of Toronto. The archive photo shows Sam the Record Man once occupied the corner.

In business since 1937, the shop moved to its historic location in 1961 and became a music mecca. While the store closed in 2007, its iconic signs are perched on a building at Dundas St E and Victoria St. Today, the corner where Sam the Record Man stood is home to the Toronto Metropolitan University Student Learning Centre.
