Throwback Thursday: Darrigo’s Groceries, 1947

The Toronto Archives – @Torontoarchives on Twitter   is a treasure trove of images and stories of Toronto past. 

Recently, the Archives published a series of photos of downtown businesses from the past century and included this image of Darrigo’s Groceries, which used to be at the corner of Spruce and Parliament streets in the 1940s.

If you have any old photos of the Cabbagetown neighbourhood you’d like to share as a “Throwback Thursday” feature, send them to, including information to identify what’s in the photo.
