Southwest corner of King & Yonge Streets    circa 1903 Vs 2019

Established in 1871, the Dominion Bank began operating at 40 King St East. Quickly outgrowing its location by 1879 a new building was constructed at 1 King St W. The cost of the new construction at the time was $40,000.

The building would stand as one of the original skyscrapers at the time. With the continued success of the bank came a need for more space. By March 1913 construction of a twelve story headquarters was underway on the same location. The new structure was completed in 1914.
