Hello from a very Wintery Toronto!

I'm hoping someone on this site can point me in the right direction for the following.

My grandfather was born at 120 Barnham Street Buildings in 1906 as was one of his siblings. The remaining siblings were all born nearby.

I am wondering if there would be a way of obtaining photographs of the building in question and hopefully, the others as well?

My grandfather was a "Barnardo Boy" and, while I've pieced together his family tree, I would now like to start adding some of the details.

I doubt very much his parents would have owned this property however, if names would be helpful by way of searching, I also have that information for search purposes once I get set in the right direction.

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Best,
Christine
