At the intersection of Queen and Spadina Streets, the building with the ugly Aldo billboard is the survivor on this corner. One wonders why they demolish a building for what now houses a MacDonald's franchise. By looking closely at the lower middle of the top photo, you can see a stairwell descending into one of Toronto’s now long gone public toilets.
