Yonge St and Davisville Ave in 1952 & 2024

Posted:

Looking northeast towards the corner of Yonge St and Davisville Ave, in the Davisville Village neighbourhood of Toronto.

The corner building at 1909 Yonge St was built in 1894 by J.J. Davis for the Davisville General Store and Post Office. The Late Victorian Vernacular style structure received heritage status from the city in 1973.

Today, the storefront is home to Circles & Squares Bakery Café. Did you know that the Davisville neighbourhood was named after the Davis family, who were early settlers in the area?
