Parkdale Baptist Church

Love this blog. Do you know anything about the Parkdale Baptist Church (AKA Western Baptist ) that stood at Queen and Callendar from 1911-1985? they just demolished the strip mall on the site and you can clearly see a wall section from the old church in the excavation. Ever come across a photo of the church? I can’t find one on the internet and I would love to know what it looked like.
I’ve looked for some information but nothing has turned up yet except these three photos that show the Church and spire in the distance.
On these maps, brick buildings are in red, wooden in yellow and blue are made of stone.
I see no record of this Church on the maps, However, the Church in question was not built until 1911….
John Silva has been kind enough to send me some photos of the Church in question.
