Today, The Annex is known for its beautiful brick homes, pedestrian-friendly parks and bustling restaurant scene. When you look back a few decades, the facade doesn’t change as much as you’d think, but there certainly are quite a few less sushi restaurants. In years past, the neighbourhood featured unpaved roads and hand-painted signs.
As BuzzBuzzNews has done with Spadina Avenue and Front Street, we’ve lined up photos of The Annex with archival photos from the City of Toronto with present-day shots from BuzzBuzzNews’ James Bombales. Check out the then-and-now sliders below!
