Queen and Brock/Then and Now

Queen and Brock/Then and NowHere’s a very nice early shot of Queen West looking west from Brock Avenue in 1916. If you click on the image there are some interesting details. Aside from the lack of cars note the abundance of awnings and horse drawn carts. To the lower right there’s a child’s wagon and half way up on the left a motorcycle is parked. The ornate building on the left is the Parkdale Municipal Offices and was built in 1888. It housed the Parkdale council chamber and office, the Firehall and engine house as well as the Police Station and Jail.
It was demolished in 1931.
