This weekend, hundreds of visitors from all across Canada will make their way to Church Street, in celebration of Toronto Pride. But the street they’ll be visiting didn’t always look how it does today. In the 1970s, it was lined with smaller brick buildings, with none of the towering glass and metal condos that you see today.
Before heading out to celebrate this weekend, be sure to check out what this historic area looked like in decades past. As BuzzBuzzNews has done with the Annex and Spadina Avenue, we’ve lined up photos of Church Street with archival photos from the City of Toronto with present-day shots from BuzzBuzzNews’ James Bombales.
