96 Street: Looking North from 112 Ave

This was a tough one to place…until I stopped looking for the two storey house on the far left. It seems that it was demolished by 1914 (as the fire insurance maps don’t show it). Other buildings gave me hints as to where on 96 Street (York) this photo was taken. The three buildings with addresses annotated in the archival image still exist. They confirmed the right area for this old photo…

Circa 1910
