Stephenson House in 1953 & 2023

Posted:

The present-day photo shows 63-65 Charles St W in the Bay-Cloverhill neighbourhood of Toronto, and the archive photo shows 78-80 St Mary St, which is on the same block. Built in the 1880s, these 3-storey, Second Empire style, semi-detached style homes once filled the block, and the building at 63-65 Charles St W is the last surviving example.

The archive photo shows when 78-80 St Mary St was the Stephenson House, a Victoria University residence. In the early 1990s, the residence moved to 63-65 Charles St W, shown in the present-day photo and served as that until 2010. Today, the heritage-designated structure continues to be part of Victoria University and is home to its Human Resources department.
