Description: 88 Lakeshore Road East, Plan 300E, pt. Lot 12. The bank opened in 1948, as the first of two local Dominion Bank of Canada branches. The Dominion Bank of Canada was founded in 1869, and opened its first branch in 1871 as it kept pace with the already established Bank of Toronto which was founded in 1855. In 1954 the two banks negotiated a merger and in 1955 became the amalgamated Toronto Dominion Bank. Located at the corner of Lakeshore Road East and Elizabeth Street, the one-storey building is typical of many banks built at the time in Art Moderne style. It is built of sandstone with a rounded fašade and a flat roof, and listed on the Heritage Register.
