Love that red & white plumbing, electrical, or whatever truck. The Coke delivery one would be cool to have also (worth a lot of $$$$$$ nowadays).

........in 1956 I was 10 years old in Toronto and could name almost every car in a similar street pic there.

Not much chance of that today.......they all look like jelly beans

Toronto 74. Strato?

 Back when hood up and checking the oil was the norm. Also, didn't every service station have an old jeep?

 ......wow - great pic......'70 Chevelle, '63 Plymouth, Sun Newspaper box and a couple others, Bell Telephone Booth and a variety store.....and if that guy is checking the oil it's either a 6 cyl or a big block, cause a small block dip stick would be on the driver's side,

thanx for posting

Halifax, NS, May 1, 1973, near the corner of Quinpool and Robie during construction of the (then) Holiday Inn.  Looks like a '65 CS with fog lights installed?

 I believe so.  There used to be a lot of those cheap British cars here, but they wouldn't last long due to rust.

 This looks like Spadina Avenue just before you get on the Gardiner Expressway, that is just south of there.

Here's a pic of the Dartmouth Shopping Centre (Dartmouth, NS) in the late 1950s or early 1960s.  It's a great illustration of how much oil cars and trucks used to drop on the roads.  Every road has a dark trail down the center, and most of the parking spots have dark spots right around the engine location - the spots closer to the stores have the most oil.  The area of the bus terminal seems to have the most.

 

Here's a link to Google maps of the area today.  There are still oil trails visible, but way less than the older pic...

https://www.google.ca/maps/@44.6707586,-63.5768511,205m/data=!3m1!1e3

If you click on 3D in Google you can recreate this exact scene pretty much.  Note that you will also have to turn off the street labels to see the oil conditions, if that's what you want to do.

 That's a good way to make a point.

I remember the TTC/Grey Coach bus terminals in Toronto and how greasy they were/are, especially on a rainy day.
