The Dineen Building was erected in 1897! A mere 30 years after the birth of this great country, making it one of the oldest buildings in Toronto! Former home to W. and D. Dineen Co. a fur clothing company which went out of business quite some time ago. The building itself made its way onto the City of Toronto Heritage Property list in November of 1973.
