The Wheat Sheaf, Toronto (updated)

Several bars and taverns claim to be the oldest in Toronto and Wheat Sheaf is among them, apparently having been in business under the same name since 1849. So... why is it I can't find any old pictures of the place? This is the oldest I can find, dating all the way back to the 1980s...
No, that's not me crossing the street.

 Breaking news! Just found a 1941 picture of the Wheat Sheaf. The bar had only been there for 92 years at this point.
No, that's not me working on the streetcar tracks.

and in 1964...

and a Toronto Business directory from 1912
