I found this map for sale in an Etsy shop, civicatlas. With shipping, it would cost over $50 to have a print copy. Sure, it would be a nice size but more than I can spend. If you have the resources I recommend getting it for any Toronto history explorers. As you can see, there are excellent images of old architecture, likely gone or very different looking now.
To see more of it myself, I searched online and found it Historical Maps of Toronto, with a link to the source for the full map at the University of Toronto. Here are screenshots, to give you a preview. I would like to have this covering an entire wall of my house. But, I will settle for keeping it as wallpaper for my desktop computer. Meanwhile, I did download the full file and I can see what it would cost to get it printed. Possibly a local business where the photographer reprints and fixes old photographs, might be just the place.

I like all the detail. Plus, it’s not the typical black mansion/ castle looking house drawn up to be spooky. This is a house you could find, abandoned somewhere not far from your own street. Too bad there isn’t a photo of the back of the cake. I hope it has a decorated back, not just a front for show. I looked up her site, Jaynee Cakes. (Somewhere in the US. I did not find a location, just a phone number).
Posted for Inktober but I think it’s great as an abandoned house. I especially like the rain. Rainy days tend to be great for photographing old places. At least they are for me. I worry about the camera and it isn’t easy trying to keep the raindrops from the lens, but I still like the rainy days best.

I forget where this was now. Pretty sure it had been a house, not just a shed. There was a house across the street and people seemed to be keeping an eye on us once we stopped and took photos. I was having a quiet day so I settled for just a few photographs and then drove on.
