OK, I fibbed. I really can't find a great Then picture of the Toronto Carpet Factory in its heyday. So, you won't get one today. That said, not much at all has changed on the outside, so, I hope no loss for those of you that like to see Then and Now comparisons where the Now scene is a dusty field.

Located at King West and Fraser, this is the hulking building that presently houses various creative and tech business tenants. In its day, the Toronto Carpet Factory also made textiles for military use.

Built in stages between 1899 and 1920, today the Toronto Carpet Factory houses a small museum of sorts dedicated to its history. You can visit the "museum" by entering through the entrance shown in the second picture below.
