Wasn’t that around the last time the Leafs won the cup?
TIL there is a great fire of Toronto in 1904 – and I live here.
More details here.
Great Fire of Toronto (1904) – Wikipedia
The description reminds me of the fire events we get here in Cali. Low humidity + high winds are a deadly combo.
Did ya see the fire, eh?
You could gave called it Stalingrad and I wouldn’t have thought twice.
Where’s the tower?
There’s a little monument with plague within the TD towers courtyard that says “this is where the fire started”. All the smokers hang out there, lol ironic
I’m going to throw out one of the most uneducated guesses in geographic history and say that looks like queens street on the right of the photograph. The exact tram lines are thankfully still in use today.
Did anyone else just suddenly realize that they know ZERO Canadian history?
