See how the city has changed in this then and now photo tour of famous Toronto landmarks

Toronto is a city rich in architectural history. From the elegant beaux arts architecture of Union Station to modern marvels like the CN Tower, the city is full of Instagram-worthy landmarks. Last month we looked at some of these landmarks including our very own famous flatiron -- the Gooderham Building -- and even saw the transformation of the old Brown Derby Tavern to today’s vibrant Yonge Dundas Square.

With so many significant sites in the city, we headed back out into the streets to compare more archival photos of famous landmarks from the City and the Toronto Public Library with present day shots.
