Yonge St is the main street that runs north/south through the middle of Toronto and acts as the dividing line between west-end Toronto and east-end Toronto. All street numbers on the crossing streets start with #1 at Yonge St so you can tell from the address of a building how far it is from Yonge. The street itself starts at Lake Ontario and leaves the city to run all the way up to Lake Simcoe. The clock tower in this pic is the tower that remains from Fire Hall #3 which was built in 1872 but closed in 1929 and now it is surrounded by commercial buildings. This stretch of Yonge, north of College St, has hundreds of small stores and businesses many in quite old buildings and displaying a lot of signs!
