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.
The original architect to design the Bank of Nova Scotia headquarters in Toronto was John M Lyle. Unfortunately due to the Depression plans for the structure were shelved. Years would pass and in the late 1940’s the plans were revisited.
John M Lyle had passed away in 1945. Moving forward the firm of Mathers and Haldenby would redesign and complete the structure. Much of the Art Deco design from the 1929 design were implemented. Construction was completed between 1949-51.
