Bank Street near Lansdowne

With all the changes coming in the next little while along Bank Street near Lansdowne Park, it seemed like a good time to look back at what the street looked like once upon a time

Here’s what the new bridge over the canal looked like in 1916, as taken by photographer William Topley:

 

Here’s one looking north from the Bank Street Bridge, taken ca. 1920s by Dept. of Interior:

 

The next image is of Brown’s Inlet, just to the west of the bridge, also 1920s:

And a rare photo indeed of Sir Wilfred Laurier, Sir Robert Borden, and a group as members of the Central Canada Exhibition Association, from 1912 just outside Lansdowne Park, (photo taken by WR. Lancefield):
