Romanesque buildings on Broadview.

See Streetcar developments vision for the Broadview hotel come to shape as shown by Christopher Hume of the Toronto Star. It’s important to know that the Broadview Hotel (1893) wasn’t the first Romanesque building completed on Broadview avenue.

That distinction goes to the Chester Hill School house at 958 Broadview which was built in 1891. For a nice tour of local historic buildings check out this guide from 29 Bikes.

 

And if you haven’t ever heard of the Broadview Hotel or the Chester Hill School House, one  was Jilly’s and the other is the Estonian House.
