Toronto surpassed Montreal in the late 1970's to become the most populous city in Canada.

Photo #156 - Mirvish Village

Mirvish Village is a commercial enclave in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located on Markham Street, which is one block west of Bathurst Street, and encompasses the two sides of the street for one block south of Bloor Street. It is located within the Palmerston-Little Italy neighbourhood, within the "Old" City of Toronto. It's made up of a series of Victorian homes on Markham Street which now house independently owned shops, art studios, cafes, bookstores, boutiques and galleries. Between 1959 and 1963, Ed Mirvish of Honest Ed's bought up the east side of the block, immediately south of his store, with the intention of tearing down the houses and building a customer parking lot. Toronto's municipal government refused to issue a building permit; therefore, Mirvish converted the buildings into art studios and galleries with the help of his wife, Anne, a sculptor. Later, he purchased the houses on the other side of the street. His son is the owner of David Mirvish Gallery, which opened in 1963 as one of Mirvish Village's first shops; along with David Mirvish Books, the enterprises act as anchors to additional retail stores and galleries.

Photo #158 - Scarborough Bluffs

The Scarborough Bluffs are an escarpment in Scarborough, Ontario along the shoreline of Lake Ontario. They run from the foot of Victoria Park Avenue in the West to the mouth of Highland Creek in the east. The escarpment forms the old shoreline of Lake Iroquois, formed after the last ice age. The bluffs were named after Scarborough, England by Elizabeth Simcoe, the wife of John Graves Simcoe, the first lieutenant governor of Upper Canada. The bluffs along Scarborough's Lake Ontario shores reminded her of the limestone cliffs in Scarborough, England. In her diary, she wrote, "The shore is extremely bold, and has the appearance of chalk cliffs, but I believe they are only white sand. They appeared so well that we talked of building a summer residence there and calling it Scarborough.A park created from fill has been built in the lake below the cliffside; named Bluffer's Park, it is accessible from the foot of Brimley Road.

Photo #160 - The Prince's Gates

Often mistakenly called the "Princess Gates," the Princes' Gates were officially opened by princes Edward, Prince of Wales (later Edward VIII, King of Canada), and Albert, (later King George VI), on August 31, 1927, during that year's CNE. They were built to celebrate Canada's 60th anniversary of Confederation, and were originally to be called "The Diamond Jubilee of Confederation Gates." but the name was changed when it was found that the Princes were touring Canada the year of its dedication. First to pass through the gate was a Veterans Parade, a tradition that later became the annual Warriors' Day Parade.The gates are made of a mix of stone and concrete. The statue at the top of the arch is the "Goddess of Winged Victory," an interpretation of the original Winged Victory of Samothrace, designed by architect Alfred Chapman of Chapman and Oxley, and carved by Charles McKechnie. In her hand she holds a single maple leaf. There are nine pillars to either side of the main arch, representing the nine Canadian provinces in existence at the time of construction. Flanking the central arch are various figures representing progress, industry, agriculture, arts and science. The gates were designed by Chapman & Oxley in Beaux-Art style.

Photo #163 - 1 Bloor East

1 Bloor East is a mixed-use skyscraper by Bazis International Inc. Construction for the building began in the third quarter of 2008. The 81-story 1 Bloor East will be approximately 275 m (902,2 ft) tall. The proposal calls for a semi-transparent metal and glass oval tower, using advanced "green" environmentally efficient technology. The building will include 132 hotel rooms and 592 condominiums. 1 Bloor East will be located at the intersection of Bloor Street and Yonge Street. The tower will be located in Yorkville, an affluent and busy neighbourhood downtown.

A panorama by dt toronto geek at UrbanToronto.ca showing the demolition of the existing buildings.
