Sunnyside Beach Bathing Pavilion - June 15, 1922 and Now

Last Sunday, Teena and I had lunch on the patio of the historic Sunnyside Beach Bathing Pavilion.

The pavilion opened to the public in 1922. It was built, according to a Globe article which ran the picture and is on the the Toronto Public Library website, as over 300,000 bathers visited the beach the year before.

Above is a photo of the pavilion taken on June 15, 1922. The building is still beautiful as this picture taken last Sunday shows. If I had known this picture would pop up on the Historic Photos from around Toronto website, I would have taken one.

This is one of my most favorite places to visit in the city. I'm glad nobody ever came up with the idea to have it torn down.
