Welcome to Cornerspotter, Curbed's game in which you try to identify the location and/or identity of a particular building or streetscape in a historic photograph. Impress us and your fellow Curbed readers with your uncanny insight into Toronto and its past!
This image shows a horse and buggy Toronto in 1910 where the building at the northeast corner still remains today. At the time, it was a residential neighbourhood and retailers later moved into the area with a theatre at the corner. A church on the main road was coverted into a factory, there were public bathrooms underground and much later on, the development of streetcar tracks at the corner. Today, you can easily get a Big Mac or a cup of coffee nearby and a proposal for a new 15-storey condo development could make an appearance in the near future. Name this corner and tomorrow, we'll reveal the answer.
