On Yonge Street near the corner with Price Street can be found this 2011 Heritage Toronto plaque. Here's what it says:
This four-unit block was built in the Italianate commercial style by William J. Bromley, contractor. Decorative brickwork accents the roofline's pressed-metal cornice and frames the different window shapes. The first occupants included a boot and shoe store, a tinsmith, a provision shop, and a dairy.

That is beautiful brickwork. Are there other examples, or more information on William J Bromley's work? firstname.lastname@example.org
