Eaton's on Yonge at College   March 5, 1930 vs 2018

Built between 1928 and 1930, the original plans for this site were far more extensive. The grandiose idea was to build the largest retail and office complex in the world. Due to the onset of the Depression only the department store segment was ever completed.

Eaton’s College Street was operated by Eaton’s between 1930 to 1977. Later renamed College Park after being sold.
