This is one of the grand entrances to the College Park Shops found at Yonge & College streets. The building was constructed from 1928 to 30 by the Eaton's department store to be their grand new store and bring about a move north from Queen St and no expense was spared in its construction, but then the Great Depression hit and plans were changed. The original store never moved and Eaton's operated a satellite store here until it closed in 1977, with the building then being divided up into smaller stores. All the wonderful deco still exist both inside and out and the building has been historically designated. A detail shot tomorrow.
