Toronto History: Are You Curious What a Posh Yorkville Area Hotel Looked like in 1890?
This is the "Gardeners' Arms Inn" at Yonge & Charles Streets in 1890
It looks like a pretty happening spot. My favourite part of the photo is the sock hanging on the left side of the inn. Both of these gentleman do look quite fashionable! I could just as easily imagine them strolling down Yorkville Avenue in 2015!
