SOME GLIMPSES OF TORONTO’S GAY VILLAGE AS IT WAS IN THE 1970’S AND AS IT IS TODAY

This was a steak house in 1972, and it’s still a restaurant in 2018.  Hair of the Dog, Wood Street at Church.  CBC’s free-standing television tower & offices are in the background.

The laundromat on the southeast corner of Maitland Street at Church in 1972, is now the Church Mouse Pub.

The parking lot opposite Maple Leaf Gardens in 1972 is now being replaced by two condo towers.

Northeast corner of Maitland and Church remains much the same as it was in 1972.

The Loblaw’s store and parking lot (1971) have been replaced by Barbara Hall Park.  The Monteith Street townhouses remain intact, but their white paint has been removed.

All archival photos are from the City of Toronto Archives & Sidewalk Labs’ OLD TORONTO project.
