Street View time machine

Yesterday, on Broadview Avenue, I admired a sympathetic architectural link joining two fine brick houses. Montcrest is a private elementary school, it turns out, and the new part is only a few months old.

Junior kindergarten to Grade 8. April, 2019

I wondered how the space had looked before, so I dialled back 6 years on Google Street View.

Aha. Parking spaces. May, 2013.

I am always amazed, walking the city, at how quickly Toronto changes. Now Street View has been photographing long enough that we have records documenting our impermanence.
