If you made your way through Kensington Market in the 1950s, you’d still find a small neighbourhood full of local businesses — but you’d also see a lot less street art.
Over the decades, the market has evolved into a quirky space full of murals and local buskers. Back in the day, it was a place where locals could get their goods for the week ahead.
As BuzzBuzzNews has done with Bathurst Street and CityPlace, we’ve lined up archival photos of Kensington Market from the City of Toronto and Toronto Public Library with present-day pics from BuzzBuzzNews’ James Bombales. Check out the then-and-now sliders below.
