Queen and Spadina/ Then and Now

Queen and Spadina/ Then and NowHere’s a shot looking south east on Spadina across Queen Street taken in 1920 or so. The Church, St. Margarets was converted into a factory in the late 1910’s.

2010, the church is still here with a new Art Deco facade and has been re-purposed as a clothing store. A look down the alley reveals the old church windows, and remnants of the bell tower.

It must have been a comfort to know back then that despite not having a cell phone, Blackberry or I-Pod that you could still be confident that there was a public washroom available should the need arise. Sometimes you have to go.
