On the southwest corner of Dundas Square and Victoria Street stands this building. A 2014 Heritage Toronto plaque, attached to the wall beside the doors, has this to say:
Coordinates: 43.655810, -79.379812
This building was constructed for Percy Hermant, a businessman who founded Imperial Optical Company. Designed by Toronto architect Benjamin Brown, it features decorative Art Deco panels along the roofline.
