Present Past is a dynamic approach to a rephotographic survey.
The City of Toronto has gone through many changes over the years. Certain buildings have stood the test of time and are dwarfed by the towers that surround them. Others have disappeared altogether. This series includes both to show the ever-changing face of the City of Toronto.
Vintage images from the Toronto Archives are merged with modern day images.
Notably the first fully electrified building in Toronto. The Academy of Music was built in 1890 and by 1895 the name changed to The Princess. Time would see a shift in public interest from theatre to movies. The dwindling audiences painted a foreseen end but another development came about. The City had plans for an extension of University Ave which was blocked by King and Queen Sts. In November 1930 the final performance of “Yankee Doodle Dandy” took place.
