[PHOTO] Three photos of St. Lawrence Market North

leave a comment »

The most recent building to occupy the place, and the role, of St. Lawrence Market North was torn down a bit more than a year ago, in preparation for new construction. (The building most recently on this site was, somewhat amazingly, intended to be a temporary construction when it was put up a half-century ago.) Local news sources have carried reports describing how archaeologists have been busily turning up all manner of artifacts going back two centuries from this site, heavily trafficked since almost the start of Toronto’s history. For now, all that there is to this space is a block of grey mu exposed to the sky at Front and Jarvis.
