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.

Toronto Board of Trade

Northeast corner of Front St & Yonge St 1900 vs 2018

Umbrella Edition - Signed and numbered series of 25.

The merging of the Board of Trade with the Corn Exchange brought about the need for a larger building. An initial budget of $200,000 (current value $6.5million) was set aside. Upon completion the buildings cost overruns amounted to an extra $140,000.

Northeast corner of Front St & Yonge St 1900 vs 2018

The Toronto Board of Trade occupied the building from 1892 – 1914 when it was sold. When the TTC formed in 1921, it occupied the building until 1958. Later that year the structure was demolished. In the 1960's many other buildings along Front St faced the same end.
